About the Noosa Yacht and Rowing Club:
For the past two years the NYRC has been a finalist in the Australian Yachting Awards, Promotion of the Sport of Sailing. Their Youth Sail Program is a standout amongst youth development programmes nationally, Youthsail not only provides a brilliant format for the development of youth sailors and racing but also provides wonderful mentoring opportunities for youth instructors and coaches, a program that works in perfectly with the concept of the O’pen BIC.

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.
