Easy & speedy - by being fast and easy to trim, it's ideal for the lightweight sailors under 35 kg.
Perfection of Details
Every aspect of the sail is studied to achieve maximum performance in all the sailing conditions according to the suggested weight of the sailor. There are no compromises - every smallest detail is designed and elaborated to achieve the premium quality sail, even if it increases the production time and costs.
The highest quality fabrics - the 2.99 polykote Dacron from Contender, ensures the best technical characteristics and the most durable sailcloth in the Optimist class.
The geometry of the sail is developed to ensure the maximum performance in all the wind conditions.
The shape and surface of the sail in combination with the position of the battens ensures that the sail is easy to trim, especially at the top part of the sail. Lenght and stiffness of battens is 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.
The cross-cut (horizontal) positioning of the panels has won the most races in the past 20 years. This panelling approach was started by Claudio Demartis in Olimpic Sails already in 1986. Since then it has become one of the best performing solutions used for the most successful sails all over the world.
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.
