Optimist


Ever since North Sails One Design started making sails our goal has been to make the fastest sails for any type of boat. The International Optimist Dinghy Class has always been one of our main focus points as these sailors are the one’s that we will be the future of our sport.

North Sails offers different designs based on the sailor's weight and predominant wind conditions.

Cross Cut Designs are a very forgiving cut that allows the sail to flex and twist easily without a major alteration in trim. These are great for sailors that sail in puffy conditions or that prefer not to adjust their sail as much. The Radial Designs are great for sailors who prefer a very active trim style. They are designed to hold their optimal shape across the breeze spectrum, as the sailor actively trims and tunes.


NORTH CROSSCUT DESIGNS:


 
MZX5 X-Cut Mainsail
Sailor weight: > 40 Kilos
Wind Range: 0-25 knots (All-Purpose)


2016 Design!!



A new crosscut design featuring a very forgiving shape allowing the sailor to focus on the big picture on the race course. The MZX5 has a powerful upper section that gives it the most "punch" of any sail on the market and it is easily de-powered as the breeze increases. The MZX5 is truly an all-purpose sail designed to give sailors an advantage in all conditions.

Mainsail standard features:

  • Contender Polykote sailcloth
  • Mylar Window
  • Active Leech
  • IODA Button
  • Tell tales
  • Sail Bag
  • Sail Number
  • Sail Ties
  • Class measurement/certificate is not included but can be offered on request subject to an additional charge
For prices and more information contact our Optimist Experts or your



MZX4 X-Cut Mainsail
Sailor weight: < 43 Kilos
Wind Range: 0-25 knots (All-Purpose)


2016 Design!!



A flatter version of the MZX5 the MZX4 is designed for the lighter sailors but with all the same characteristics as its big sister. Easy to trim and forgiving throughout the whole range of conditions the MZX4 is the perfect all rounder. Being such forgiving sails we have managed to increase the cross over of sailors weights within the MZX range.

Mainsail standard features:

  • Contender Polykote sailcloth
  • Mylar Window
  • Active Leech
  • IODA Button
  • Tel ltales
  • Sail Bag
  • Sail Number
  • Sail Ties
  • Class measurement/certificate is not included but can be offered on request subject to an additional charge

NORTH RADIAL DESIGNS:

 P5 Radial Mainsail
Sailor weight: > 43 Kilos
Wind Range: 0-25 knots (All-Purpose)

The P-5 (designed by North Sails Japan) is a great all-around sail that has slightly more power in the head than the North H-08. This gives the sail a slight bias towards lighter winds, however when de-powered properly it will still perform well in the breeze.  The amount of twist designed into this sail makes it easier to trim than most cross-cuts. This sail will suit sailors over 95 lbs. 

Mainsail standard features:

  • Contender 2.99 Polykote with Radial Construction
  • Mylar Window
  • Active Leech
  • IODA Button
  • Telltales
  • Sail Bag
  • Sail Number
  • Class measurement/certificate is not included but can be offered on request subject to an additional charge

 P4 Radial Mainsail
Sailor weight: 34-43 Kilos
Wind Range: 0-25 knots (All-Purpose)



The P-4 (designed by North Sails Japan) is recommended for sailors between 75-95 lbs. A very easy to use radial design, developed along the same principles as the P-5 but slightly flatter. It was used successfully to win the girls’ Optimist Worlds in 2008.

Mainsail standard features:

  • Contender 2.99 Polykote with Radial Construction
  • Mylar Window
  • Active Leech
  • IODA Button
  • Tel ltales
  • Sail Bag
