Our Junior optimist utilizes the same hull as our Racer and Pro optimist. Hulls are IODA approved and measured and we used biaxial cloth and superior structural adhesives for bonding which promotes optimum strength. The mainsheet system, spars and foil package make this an affordable and high quality entry-level Optimist dinghy for beginners, sailing clubs and other learn to sail programs.
