For the past three years Allen Brothers has been supporting grass-roots sailing by supplying an Ovington-built Optimist to a budding young sailor, and this year is no different.

Since receiving the support of Allen, Nick Evans, last year's winner, has scored some amazing results. Nick's results included a third Junior at the UK Nationals, ninth overall whilst representing GBR at the Irish Nationals, and he also qualified to represent GBR at the Optimist Europeans in Holland.

However, it is now time for the next deserving young sailor to receive the Allen Academy Optimist. The sailor who is lucky enough to gain the support of Allen this year will be supplied with the Ovington Optimist that comes with brand new Allen hardware, two sets of North Sails, foils and spars.

We are looking for a young sailor who is full of passion for sailing and looking to take their racing to the next level with the help of a fully race tuned Optimist. If you know someone who is deserving of the Allen Academy Optimist tell us why in the form on our website: www.allenbrothers.co.uk/about-us/team-allen/allen-academy-optimist-award

Entries close on Friday the 22nd of February 2019. Make sure you follow Allen on Facebook where the winner will be announced: www.facebook.com/AllenBrothersSailing

Allen manufactures and distributes high performance sailing hardware from its base in Essex. The company continues to evolve its products with the support from its Olympic Level Team Allen sailors as well as young up and coming youth level athletes.
