"Sailors for Life"

USODA is the National class organization for Optimist sailing in the United States. 


The United States Optimist Dinghy Association (USODA) has helped grow interest in sailing and would like you to join us in developing lifelong sailors.

Our mission is simple:

USODA will support and sustain junior sailors, their families, and junior sailing programs with leadership, information, and organization which facilitates the growth of Optimist sailing at all levels. We will accomplish this while promoting fun, safety, self-reliance, and good sportsmanship.


USODA is a 501(c)(3) educational organization, able to receive tax deductible contributions from individuals. Its interest is in promoting a boat, the International Optimist Dinghy (IOD), and promoting sailing across the United States. 

The USODA is the US member of the International Optimist Dinghy Association (IODA). This association coordinates rules and standards for the Optimist as a strict One Design class. IODA is a member of World Sailing. US Sailing oversees sailing in the USA.

Get involved in one of the largest sailing classes in the world!
