Because there is no second place!
The Optisailors PRO-RACER is the ultimate speed machine and is engineered to be the absolute stiffest, highest quality and most advanced Optimist available in the world.
Pro Racer Details:
Pro-Racer hull: The hull is built on a Thursday to allow 4 days residence in the mold. This assures the hull shape is totally rigid and will not change. McLaughlin then further refines the bottom, edges, centerboard slot and rig it to the most modern systems and hardware available. It includes standard features top sailors demand; the strongest mast step attachment - so you'll never have to worry about it, precision appendage alignment check on every hull, and racing wall to wall non-skid. If it is new and tested it is on your Optisailors Pro-Racer.
The Pro-Racer comes completely rigged with floating, high-vis bowline & bow loop; dual red and green bailers; ball bearing HARKEN blocks including the "Carbo Ratchamatic" main sheet block; double tapered mainsheet with boom extender, 3 EZ-fill heavy duty airbags and straps, Optisailors double padded adjustable hiking straps; Delrin mast collar w/ mast safety tie-in and mast lock; stainless steel adjustable locking mast step; daggerboard adjustment system w/ handle; daggerboard protection kit; non-skid surfacing in cockpit; owners manual and rigging guide; IYRU plaque and USODA measurement book.
Your choice of top-level Racing Spars: Dinghy Locker recommends Optiparts Blackgold EX978 power spar set, with 4 boom choices, which is considered best worldwide. In addition, top rated sailors insist on the Optimax MKIV spar set for optimum speed and performance.
Sails: Dinghy Locker stocks the fastest racing sails in the world: J Sails North Sails, Quantom-Toni Tio, and Olimpic.
Blades: "New Rule" Epoxy Foils from N1 dominate the field of racing blades and are seen on the majority of Optimists at World and Continental Championships. They include a Deluxe Optiparts black anodized tiller, and removable tiller extension.
