O'Pen Bic

SKU: 10034

The O'pen Bic is a modern, fast and fun boat for kids. Young sailors can experience the excitement of sailing a fast, responsive planing boat. The hull is fairly stable and the rig supports multiple sail sizes for good versatility. The O'pen Bic allows young sailors to easily transition from the stable, ridged hull of the Opti to that of modern dinghies such as the Laser!
