Abromowitz, Sharp and Associates Optimist for The Great Optimist Race

Personal message

Support the Abromowitz, Sharp and Associates Optimist dinghy in The Great Optimist Race and help us not only make it first across the finishing line, but also onto the Fundraising Leaderboard. 

We are raising funds for the Lawhill Maritime Center at the Simon's Town School. By providing students aged approximately 15 to 17 with specialised knowledge and skills in their last three years of secondary schooling (Grades 10 to 12), the Lawhill Maritime Centre at Simon’s Town School has, since 1995, made it possible for hundreds of young South Africans to embark on successful careers in the maritime and other industries.

The Great Optimist Race

The Great Optimist Race Logo

The  Great Optimist Race 2019  will be held during the Cape Town International Boat Show, on October 19th.  Between 35 and 40 Optimist Children’s dinghies will be raced by adults ( Celebrities, Medical Survivors & Captains of Industry)  not only for glory, but also to raise money and awareness for the charity of their choice . The Race will be a FANTASTIC and UNIQUE fundraising event , spreading Optimism and Hope across so many sectors. All the funds raised by each boat will be split between The Little Optimist Trust and the charity supported by that boat. 

The event will take place at the V & A Waterfront so come down to support your boat and see who walks away with the coveted trophy.

 Please donate and BackaBoat by selecting the boat and charity you would like to support.   Challenge your friends and corporates to match or better your donation, and help us to help other people.
