Allen Academy Optimist

The Allen Academy Optimist is a concept put together by Allen Brothers with the aim of promoting and helping grow youth sailing.

Each year a deserving young sailor is awarded the boat with the hope it will help them take their sailing to the next level. The lucky recipient will be awarded the 2016 built Ovington Hull which comes fully re-fitted with brand new hardware from Allen, Marlow Rope, One Sails Optimist Sail and Spars and foils.
