Is this boat - the O'Pen Bic - the future of junior sailing? Could it be the Opti killer? A fast, planing hull. Fully battened windsurfer-like sail. None of that tedious bailing after a capsize. And a clever idea to make the transition easy for current Opti owners: you can just buy the hull of the O'Pen Bic and use your current Opti rig with it - then buy the O'Pen Bic rig later. And to my old geezer eyes it looks way more cool than an Opti.
The O'Pen Bic looks like a winner to me. Wonder when Cutest Granddaughter In The World will be ready for one?
