The Optimist sailing dinghy from a kit?

Dear Roy and team,
We launched the Oppie recently and she sails very well. Here are some pictures as promised.

Best of luck for the new year.

This has been one of our favorites, we have shipped them to the East and West coast of the USA, Spain, Switzerland,Australia and quite a few places in between!

Priced at a low R5500 (plus vat in South Africa only)  or U$325 plus shipping they are very cost effective.

The Optimist in this picture was built from a CKD Boats cc kit, we probably supplied the North Sail as well.

We supply a fourteen page builders guide with many pictures as part of each kit.

The boat was built for the grandson but I do not think it is he who is sailing it, rather his dad, the son can be seen with his PDF on and sitting low down in the hull of the boat, check the first picture.

The Optimist can easily be carried in the back of  an LDV or even on the roof of a car with suitable racks and tie down straps.

This Optimist was later shipped out to Austalia.
