THE NEW R5 OPTIMIST MAINSAIL
North Sails is Proud to Introduce a New Member of the Optimist Radial Series
Designed by the North Sails dinghy experts in Japan, the R5 is the perfect addition to North’s “R Series” Radial Optimist sails. The R Series was designed to deliver unparalleled pointing and acceleration capabilities throughout a wide range of conditions. A radial sail is more “rigid” than a conventional cross-cut sail. The sail holds its shape and responds more sensitively to trimming and tuning changes. This is the perfect Optimist sail for racers looking to get the absolute most speed and versatility on the race course.
