The Roundup



Every once in awhile, we'll be gathering some articles, videos and information to keep your bow down and stay in phase with the sailing world! This curated series will often times include things that are not Opti specific - but aren't we trying to keep the big picture anyways? Enjoy!

Solo Sailing Drills And Safety - McLaughlin Boat Works

A great article on making sure everything is up to par before heading out alone - especially useful to those of us who may be able to go sailing during quarantine!

IODA Sustainability Topic 3 Published

The International Class continues to publish its publication on sustainability and education - as we wrote in our "Is This A Chance To Start Fresh?" article, we think this information would be fantastic to make part of sail education curriculums across the country.


Mr Childers' Boat House Episode 6 Finale

The child-friendly series from the US Sailing Starboard Portal concluded with Episode 6: Having Fun At Sailing School this month. This series is great to show your youngest ones who perhaps are starting to sail for the first time this year.


VELA - Episode 4 Finale

What happens when 4 surfer friends get together on a Gunboat 55 and go on a 2,500 nm adventure through the Pacific? This amazingly well-composed series ended with Episode 4 this month, and is sure to engage the youngest and oldest sailors in your family. Make sure to watch in the highest video settings you can!
