We make sails for Optimists able to win in all
conditions. We are aware of the importance of our experience: we have
made more than 30,000 sails that have been to every corner of the globe.
Our strong point is our constant research, combined
with the high standard of quality of our product. Continuous sea tests
in collaboration with the best sailors and instructors at a worldwide
level enable us to improve and always lead in this class.
The results speak better than any technical
descriptions: Olimpic Sails has been World Champion 15 times in the past
20 years. No other sail maker in the world can match this result!
NOTE: Above weight range are to be meant as “suggested”; the final
choice should be taken bearing in mind the technical level and skills as
well as the physical characteristics of each athlete.
The RED model needs no introduction: it is the most well-known and the easiest to use, the winner of many world championships.
The HAPPY is our new model, developed in 2013 in association with the
legendary trainer of the national Singapore team, Fernando “Happy”
Alegre, for sailors weighing between 37 and 42 kg. This sail offers a
perfect fusion of power and twist, making for comfortable close hauling
and excellent performance when running downwind.
GOLD and PLATINUM are new-generation sails that have
recently been fine-tuned thanks to tests and clinics undertaken with
the best sailors and instructors at a worldwide level who have confirmed
the technical perfection we have designed into these sails.
GOLD is recommended for sailors of light-to-medium
weight, while the PLATINUM is recommended for those over 45 kg in
weight. Both offer broader entry and optimized geometry to provide
maximum area when sailing downwind; the radial sheet and new fabric
ensure the highest performance for this easy-to-use sail on all points
of sail and in all conditions.
