Too small, too slow and too square to be a real sailing boat, this is what the bigger sailing boats tell the Little Optimist.

 

Yet this Little Optimist has a huge heart! One dark night, a storm blows up. With a friend in trouble, who will save the day?

The Little Optimist by Greg Bertish

SKU: 9780620754057
R180,00Price
  • Bullied, insecure and dyslexic as a child, Greg believed he would not amount to much. How wrong he was! Greg is now a family man, humanitarian, charity campaigner, author and the founder of the internationally awarded Sharkspotter Program and The Little Optimist Trust. After surviving two cardiac surgeries and 200 days in hospital fighting a tropical bacteria, he went on to sail an 8ft children's Optimist dinghy around the Cape of Storms in 2016.

    He raised ZAR 1.3 million for the Red Cross Children’s Hospital and OPTIMIST , the internationally acclaimed documentary about his journey, was released. A respected sailor and surfer, Greg shifted “perceived reality” when, as a multiple cardiac surgery survivor, he became National Champion in Lifesaving and Stand-Up Paddle Boarding. In 2019 he was recognised on a global platform, for the incredible charity work he does in Africa. He was awarded the joint winner of the DAME Charity award in Amsterdam. After authoring two children's books, Greg has partnered with both the Laureus Foundation and Paris Olympics 2024 (Impact 2024) and has opened the first Sailing Therapy Academy in Cape Town.
