NEW MNR SERIES OPTIMIST BI-RADIAL MAINSAIL

Tested and Approved

📸 Patrick Lelay

48 French Optimist sailors took to Kerguelen Beach to race and qualify a spot at the 2020 Cap d’Agde. 13- year old Gabin Baly came out with the win overall after four races and two bullets powered by his new North Sails Optimist Bi-Radial Mainsail.

Using this new model for the first time, Gabin was pleased with the performance gain he got from using his new sail.

“Before I used the MZX4 and R2, and now I just tried the new model, the Bi-Radial for the first time for this regatta. I am very surprised about the abilities I had when it came to pointing, especially off the starting line. The new North Bi-Radial is great too downwind for speed and surfing waves.”

When it comes to what conditions it worked best? Gabin replied; “I used the same rake I had with my R2 (2,80m) for this regatta with winds ranging from 15-25 knots.”

“I am very happy with my new sail. It’s an easy decision when it comes to what I will be using for the French qualifiers, the Europeans, and the Worlds.”

North clients finished 1,2,4,9. For more information on the fastest sail designs for the Optimist, contact your local expert today.
