The Optimist Dinghy

Over a six month time span, Cleo built an Optimist Dinghy in an empty store in Old Scottsdale. The Optimist Dinghy is a seaworthy 8 foot wooden sailing vessel designed specifically for children to learn the craft of sailing. The design is based on a small Greek vessel used to gather items lost in shipwrecks. It is the chosen vessel of Cleo the Eternal Optimist for sailing the high seas in search of lost lemons.
