Optimist Intro


 

"A bathtub that breeds the best sailors"

In 2011, Sligo Yacht Club has adopted the Optimist class as a development fleet.

Optimists are designed for kids.

They can handle them without danger, fear or back-strain. 

They are safe and simple enough for a 6-8 year old. 

Over 150,000 kids in over 100 countries cannot be wrong.

The Optimist is not only one of the biggest dinghy classes in the world, it is the fastest growing.

They are also known as; "a bathtub that breeds the best sailors"
