The Little Optimist at the Waimea Ocean Film Festival


“The Little Optimist follows Greg Bertish as he attempts his childhood dream—to sail an “Optimist,” an eight-foot children’s sailing dinghy, around the Cape of Storms in South Africa. A two-time, open-heart surgery survivor, the 200kms journey symbolizes the 200 days Bertish spent in the hospital and the R200,000 South African Rand he hopes to raise for a new ICU at Red Cross Children’s War Memorial Hospital”

The start of the Little Optimist spreading his love Internationally and inspiring more survivors to fight their battle across the globe.
