Designed specifically for juniors, our little dinghy has blown a big breath of fresh air through our sailing world, close to the new-generation skiff concept, very fast and very simple. 100% open, self-bailing, rapid and responsive, with an up-to-date versatile rig, the Open BIC offers kids a machine that delivers maximum fun while helping them learn the skills and reflexes to enjoy racing on current, high-performance equipment. Hundreds of sailing clubs around the world have opted for the Open BIC, for a new, fun way of teaching sailing to appeal to youngsters attracted to new sail sports. The Open BIC has also ruffled the feathers of the traditional race scene, with race formats and simplified rules that focus more on fun and improvement than just race results. Innovative courses and rules, on-water refereeing, and even freestyle encourage participation and a variety of sailing skills.
At international level, the class is more action-packed than ever, with an ever-increasing calendar of international regattas and events. This summers World Championships in Quiberon, France, brought together 205 racers from 15 countries. Our best ever entry. In our homeland of Europe there are more and more participants and competitions :many nations are seeing a rapid growth of Open BIC fleet and taking advantage of that dynamic to encourage more and more young converts to sailing.
The rig includes a fully-battened, 4.5m2 mono-film sail with mast pocket, similar to that of a windsurf sail. Rigged on an epoxy mast, the sail has been de-signed with an open leech to give sailors maximum control and performance in windy conditions. The Cunningham tackle (6 threads + cleat) associated with the boom vang / boom safety attachment, allows sailors to trim efficiently the tension of the sail.
The hull of the Open BIC was designed with fun sailing as the priority. It is a modern boat where the hull is as open as possible, thereby leaving the helms-man completely free to move around and trim the boat to any wind and water conditions. When hiking, the large sides allow the sailor to set-up comfortably with his/her feet in the straps without placing any unnecessary stress on the body.
