Another great day at The Cape Town International Boatshow

Greg and the Little Optimist were the Guest Speaker at the cocktail evening and the launch and introduction of the new Boat Show sponsor, Messe Frankfurt.

The guests were blown away by a talk that caught many of them off guard and created much inspiration, talk and good vibes.

Sailors, boat builders as well as the new sponsors were inspired by Greg’s survival story, his charity work, his vision and the Great optimist Race, launching in 2018.

What the Chairman had to say;

Dear Greg,
Many thanks for giving up your valuable time to address the VIP Boat Show function.

Your presentation was mindblowing, without a doubt. Hugely inspirational and as a sailor addressing a room full of professional sailors and boatbuilders you took their breath away. A very special evening.

I expect that the Great Optimist Challenge next year will be over-subscribed. I have 11 confirmed entries from the boatbuilders I know. I hope we can find enough Oppies for the guys to buy, race and then donate to your cause.
Fight the good fight.

Safe sailing and good health.

Kind regards,
Bruce
