Yes it was designed in 1942 yet this class continues to develop and evolve. It may not be pretty but you can’t argue with the success of the Optimist class globally and the number of Olympic sailors who are ex Opti sailors. This page is dedicated to Opti pics, comments and action from ourselves and around the world. The Opti section is put together by Ben Hartnett who sails Opti AUS 506.

Now when I saw this, it kind of freaked me out because it’s not everyday you see an optimist with a pole out the front with a spinnaker flying.
