#BeAnOptimist Challenge Two Finalists

#BeAnOptimist Challenge Two has ended. The challenge was to Build an Optimist out of Recyclable Materials.  

We received several excellent submissions that it was difficult to come down to just five. As a result, we added a 6th place as an honourable mention.  The six finalists will receive a Sail Optimist hat!

Recyclable material used to make the Optimists included a shampoo bottle, water bottles, light bulbs, skewers, paper, cardboard, string and chop sticks.  

Here they are in alphabetical order by first name:

  1. Abbie (AUS)
  2. Baltazar (CHI)
  3. Genki (JPN)
  4. Lawrence (TCA)
  5. Mateo (ARG)
  6. Santiago (ARG)  

We want to thank all of you who submitted your great work and sharing it with us. It was so great to hear from you!

Hope to see you out on the water soon!

Keep healthy & safe!
