The National Championships in the Optimist class for children between 8-15 years of age is being held off Fremantle this week. It was a great sight to see 220 of these tiny boats on the Indian Ocean this morning, but disappointing I had to find out by chance as I have not seen any promotion for the event.
There were maybe ten spectators on the South Mole and that is not good enough for such an important event. It is continuing all week but a possible rest day on Thursday. Go out there and support these great kids!
