~Designed for sailors weighing 50-120 lbs., the Optimist Dinghy has become the world standard for introductory junior trainers. Optimist sailors learn the essential steering and sail-trimming skills necessary to continue in the sport of sailing. Its flat, stable hull provides an unintimidating introduction to sailing; and, as young sailors progress, they can graduate to the Optimist racing circuit. With a simple rig and a light, durable hull, Vanguard Optimists have become the #1 choice of junior sailors.

The Vanguard Optimist has been proven safe through years of tough use in instructional programs around the world. The flat, square hull and manageable rig are stable in all wind and sea conditions. Each boat carries three floatation bags, guaranteeing a buoyant, self-righting boat. The light-weight hulls are easily manipulated by instructors in a safety boat.

The same Optimist Dinghy that introduced thousands of kids to sailing each year provides a world of sailing opportunities as sailors advance in racing skill. With over 150,000 Optimist Dinghies actively racing in 85 nations, the Optimist is one of the largest and fastest-growing classes in the world. Young sailors can race at the club, regional, national and world levels as their skills develop.
