About OziOpti

OziOpti was established with the goal of introducing more kids to sailing and bringing sailing back to basics with these primary objectives;

  • Make sailing more affordable.
  • Provide a ‘level playing field’ through a One-design dinghy.
  • Supply a product of world class standard.
  • Promote interclub, interstate and international competition.
  • Work with sailing clubs to increase participation
  • But above all else - Get kids in boats.

Quality products to suit junior sailing needs

OziOpti supplies International Optimist Dinghies for racing and the OziOpti Poly for training.

The OziOpti is available in two models, the ‘Club’ Opti is perfect if you’re new to sailing or continuing on just for fun, the hull is identical to the Regatta model we’ve just kept the equipment at a more modest level to make your initial purchase in line with the introduction to sailing, it is easy to upgrade the spars, foils and sails when extra performance is due, or go straight to our ‘Regatta’ Opti which is specified to World Championship standards with the best spars, foils, sails, blocks and fittings all at the best prices.  

The OziOpti 'Poly’ is based on the Optimist but slightly larger to accommodate more than one kid and is more durable , made from single layer polyethylene, a material and construction method which is much stronger than conventional fiberglass and multi-layer polyethylene, it means almost zero maintenance for clubs.

Flexible payment options for affordability and Club/School support

One of the objectives we set was to make sailing more affordable, we’ve done that by offering a number of ways you can get into OziOpti products by offering straight forward purchase at low prices or the EziOpti rental plan or charter options for regattas, that way you’re not outlaying it all in one hit only to find out that junior is allergic to water, and wind!!

Significant savings and fleet support is offered by OziOpti to Clubs and Schools
