Personal message

Support the Justice Desk/ Craig Lucas 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.

The Justice Desk was established in 2013,
with the main goal of promoting the power of Everyday Activism. In order to do this, we empower ordinary people to understand and defend their Human Rights, so that they can transform society and create a more just and equal world.

We are proud to announce that Craig Lucas will be our Skipper. He is the winner of The Voice South Africa Season 2 and sings the hugely popular song, ANTI-SOCIAL.

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.
