About the O’pen BIC:
The internationally acclaimed and awarded O’pen BIC Dinghy caused a storm when it was released in 2006 and has gathered plenty of momentum since hitting the World scene. A wind of change is what the O'pen BIC has brought to the world of dinghy sailing for kids. Young sailors now have a true glide machine for real excitement on the water. The O'pen Bic, with its modern and powerful rig, is a fast boat, quick to respond, self-bailing, and is fitted by the best marine hardware manufacturers (North, Ronstan, Robline). The O'pen BIC is the link between the Optimist generation and the new generation of sailing dinghies.
