North Sails Optimist Radial Mainsail - 3 versions
The North sails Optimist Radial Series delivers unparalleled acceleration and speed 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.
