Optimist R1 Radial Mainsail

Sailor's weight below 34 kg

The North sails Optimist Radial Series delivers unparalleled acceleration and speed throughout a wide range of conditions. A radial sail is more “rigid” than a conventional cross cut sail. The sail holds its shape and responds more sensitively to trimming and tuning changes. This is the perfect Optimist sail for racers looking to get the absolute most speed and versatility on the race course.

The R-1 Mainsail is our flattest sail in the radial range, ideal for sailors below 34 kg.
