The Optimist is a small, single-handed sailing dinghy intended for use by children up to the age of 15.
The tried and true “Opti” program is where many a great sailor started. Surely there is no better way to get the basic concepts and feel the joy of sailing for the first time.
Our childrens courses are designed to provide a fun, safe and enjoyable introduction to small boat sailing . We give children an introduction to fundamental boat handling skills and essential knowledge that will allow them to know the freedom of sailing small boats, teach them a new skill, build their confidence and water awareness, all under the guidance of our Instructors.
