“The O’pen Skiff is a fantastic boat for young sailors to experience the joy of sailing. It is fast, exciting and fun to sail yet simple to rig and maintain. Many of the skills earnt in the O’pen Skiff will be easily transferred to other boats as sailors evolve and progress onto other forms of sailing.”
