It isn’t hard to see why Olimpic sails’ Optimist class boats nabbed 15 World Champion titles in the past 19 years, the most titles won by any sail loft worldwide. Olimpic Optimist sails are designed for first-class wins in all environments and are exclusively sized to meet the particular weight and experience level of every Opti sailor. Landfall® offers Olimpic Opti sails in three models — the Standard X-Cut, Radial Cut and Sailing School — with various options to suit sailors ranging in weight from 75 to 100 pounds. For detailed specs, reference the handy Olimpic Optimist Sails Data Sheet.
The X-Cut sails are traditional cross-cut sails, which provide better breathability and self-adjustment in rapidly changing conditions. The Radial Cut sail requires more fine-tuning and trim attention, but offers a fast and very high-pointing result. Finally, the Sailing School sails are made of non-temperate Dacron that’s less delicate and longer-lasting for beginners. All of these models are color-coded based on weight recommendation for easier purchasing. When buying Olimpic Optimist sails, try to remember that the weight recommendation is just a suggestion, and experience and technical skill of the athlete should always be taken into account as well.
Olimpic Red X-cut Optimist Racing Sail OLRD < 85 lbs The Olimpic Red sail is Olimpic's most popular cut sail. It is a cross cut sail, which means the panels were sewn horizontally.
