Clark Mills and the Optimist Pram

Most sailors, or at least most racing sailors are familiar with the Optimist Pram, but may not know the story of how or why it was developed. That is one of the reasons we are building the McKay Creek Boat Shop at Heritage Village. Clark Mills designed the pram for the Clearwater Florida Optimist Club, the Document below will explain the beginning of what would become the International Optimist Pram now sailed around the world.
