Best Practices And Tips One of the downsides of the Optimist class having such a high level competition is that Optis get worn down through the use that they get relatively quickly.

We've put together some basic tips that you can use to keep your Opti in racing shape, from keeping your boat clean to spots of wear to look out for. As always if you have questions or want some more tips, feel free to DM us or post a comment below!
