Easy & speedy - by being fast and easy to trim, it's preferred optisail of many lightweight sailors under 35 kg.
Sailcloth and Design
The CD Flat sail is made with 2.8 polykote Dacron from Contender. While the technical characteristics and durability of this sailcloth are the same as for 2.99 polykote Dacron, this material is 15 % less elastic in the diagonal direction. These material characteristics assure that even in conditions with strong wind, the sail will be able to maintain better its initial shape.
For Lightweight sailors, it means that it will be easier to manage the sail and keep the boat stable when the wind is increasing.
The geometry of the sail is developed to ensure maximum performance in all wind conditions. The shape and surface of the sail in combination with the position of the battens ensure that the sail is easy to trim, especially at the top part of the sail. The length and stiffness of battens are adapted to match perfectly the designed shape of the sail.
The tabling is precisely elaborated and adapted for various edges of the sail to maximize the performance.
Our sail design is developed to reach the maximum possible dimensions according to the International Optimist Dinghy Association (IODA) class rules. Every sail is constantly measured and controlled during the production process and an official sail measurement certificate is provided for each sail.
Your complete Optimist Sail includes:
- IODA Optimist Sail Label
- Optimist Class Logo (Dark Grey)
- Tell Tales
- Class Measurement / Certificate
