The International Optimist is a single-handed dinghy which is ideal for children who are first learning to sail, or other junior sailors as a training boat. It is sailed by children under the age of 15 years. The Optimist is a very popular training boat at the Club, and each year Tackers, Gromets and Learn to Race programs are conducted using the Optimist class.
