A modern hull
The fast, planing hull of the O’pen Bic gives a dynamic sailing experience of a true
dinghy that heels. Being at the helm of this powerful machine gives you the same
excitement normally experienced on a boat for adults. With its 60-foot Open
design, including a totally open self draining stern, even capsizing is fun!
Young sailors are fully independent on the water and will be proud to sail such
a modern-looking and elegant boat, one that both sails and looks like the boat
of today’s champions.
On the hull, the shaped daggerboard and rudderblade, and
all deck equipment and fittings are worthy of the most modern dinghies:
Cunningham tackle, mainsheet with ratchet block. The rig includes a
fully-battened, 4,5m2 mono-film sail with mast pocket, similar to
that of a windsurf board. Rigged on an epoxy mast, the sail has been designed
with an open leech to give sailors maximum control and performance in windy
AN UPGRADEABLE CONCEPT
Upgrade is a key word for the O’pen Bic. First, sailors start off by buying
the hull only - they can keep the rig that they already have with the Optimist.
Given that they are familiar with the handling of the Spiritsail, this
combination gives them a boat that is more fun and more powerful, yet still easy
to handle and progress with. Later on, with the purchase of the 4,5m2
O’pen Bic rig, the O’pen Bic comes into its own, becoming the true glide machine
it is meant to be! The O’pen Bic offers fast and powerful sailing while still
remaining easy to control.
