Great News - The Optimist are back!!
We look forward to the Opi invasion of Pwllheli on 4th to 10th August where the usual warm welcome awaits the youngsters and the sailing starts of the future!
The Optimist is a small, single-handed sailing dinghy intended for use by children up to the age of 15. Nowadays boats are usually made of fibreglass, although wooden boats are still built.
It is one of the most popular sailing dinghies in the world, with over 150,000 boats officially registered with the class and many more built but never registered.
The Optimist is recognised as an International Class by the International Sailing Federation
