Optimist is the sailing entry class used worldwide: a boat for kids to develop the basic sailing skills. It is a very basic design focused on safety. Yet, at Devoti Sailing we believe in quality and competitiveness. Even in the most basic design, even for kids. With this spirit, Roman Teply applied his skill to perfect the traditional Optimist design, and selected high quality materials to produce our D-Optimist.
Success at the highest levels of professional sport is becoming increasingly complex. Top sailing prospects needs to grow on the basis of high-level centers where high performance athletes can work in groups with the same goal, winning an Olympic medal. Dinghy Academy was created keeping in mind this current trend.
