What is it?
The BIA/ YNSW Optimist program has been developed to promote participation in sailing by putting fleets of Learn To Sail boats into clubs across the State.
Deliver fleets of 8 Optimist Dinghys to 10 clubs for use in learn to sail programs
To date fleets have been delivered to Concord & Ryde Sailing Club, Port Stephens, Abbotsford 12’ Flying Squadron, St. George Sailing Club, Connels Point Sailing Club and Georges River 16' Sailing Club.
The program is designed to alleviate the shortage of accessible club based boats for introductory participation programs, Learn to sail programs, After School programs and School holiday camps.
