NORTH SAILS INTRODUCES THE NEW BI-RADIAL OPTIMIST MAINSAIL

MNR Series Delivers Enhanced Pointing And Ease Of Trim

Optimist MNR Bi-Radial Series | North Sails

North Sails, the world leader in One Design, have added a new series of user friendly Optimist sails for the exciting dinghy class, completing their full range of diverse sail solutions for any Opti sailor.

The new ‘all-around’ MNR Series delivers increased pointing ability from the radial bottom which allows the lower leech of the sail to stand up. Paired with the bi-radial design, the crosscut top allows the head to twist open ensuring boatspeed is maintained. As a result of the sail design delivering proper trim without constant attention, Opti sailors are able to look around for pressure and wind shifts, while maintaining speed throughout a wide range of conditions and tuning changes.

North Sails Designer Mike Marshall says, “The new bi-radial MNR Series is the perfect Optimist sail for racers looking for a balance of pointing, speed, and keeping your head out of the boat. We wanted to create a sail that will give any Opti racer around the world a competitive advantage and the feedback from this sail has shown that sailors increase their pointing without sacrificing speed upwind or downwind. The sail overall is very dynamic and reacts well to all tuning options on the table in the Optimist Class. North Sails is committed to delivering the very best products, and we’re proud to give our young Opti sailors the best chance of succeeding on the water.”

The new bi-radial MNR Series is the perfect Optimist sail for racers looking for a balance of pointing, speed, and keeping your head out of the boat.

The sail is still very sensitive to sprit tension, offering Opti sailors the opportunity to make it fit any conditions. In light airs, or waves, where racers want a bit more speed, they can loosen the sprit as required. In flat water, or medium breeze, sailors can tighten the sprit and close the leech for extra pointing.

The MNR-1 is the flattest sail in the bi-radial range, ideal for sailors below 34kg. The medium-depth MNR-2 is designed for sailors between 34-42kg. The MNR-3 is the deepest and most powerful, perfect for sailors over 42kg.
