The Optimist is clearly the most suitable boat for learning to sail, and is also the ideal craft to commence racing. A boat that has become a passion for parents, coaches and even the manufacturers !
Competing in sailing races as a child created strong and sustainable relationships for me. Over the years I lost contact with friends from middle school, but not the ones who I raced sailboats with.
Since 1998 Erplast has manufactured and sold its racing Optimist, supporting the Optimist Class by being a partner of Promotion Optimist (POP).
