Recently there has been renewed interest in our international class the Optimist dinghy.
We have three such kits due to arrive right now for a sailing school in the USA.
The program is to get the pupils to build the kits, then learn how to sail them too.
Today I packed two more Optimist kits off to a customer in Switzerland, he bought one last year and says that he had so much fun assembling it that can he have two more.
He also placed an order for the much larger Argie 15 dinghy.
My thanks to Justin for the use of his SA Yacht Blog story on the Argie 15 design.
