      Item Description
      The O'pen Bic is a new performance dinghy for kids. The O'Pen Bic is designed for recreational, advanced and competition use for children and teenagers.
      The O'pen Bic is THE link between the Optimist generation and the new generation of sailing dinghies. The fast, planing hull of the O'pen Bic gives a dynamic sailing experience of a true dinghy that heels.
      Being at the helm of this powerful machine gives you the same excitement normally experienced on a boat for adults.  Young sailors are fully independent on the water and will be proud to sail such a modern-looking and elegant boat, one that both sails and looks like the boat of today's champions.
      Check out the new O'pen Bic website!
      The Opti rig, dagger board and rudder will fit the O'pen Bic - so all you have to do is buy the hull only.  Your children will be familiar with the rig and parts so the transition will be that much easier. Later you can add the O'pen Bic rig and parts to encourage progression.
