The hull of the O'pen Bic was designed with fun sailing as the priority. The hull is as open as possible, completely freeing the helmsman 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 their feet in the straps without placing any unnecessary stress on the body. The totally open and sloping cockpit means that there is absolutely no water in the boat either during sailing or just after a capsize.
The hull includes integrated carry handles that make it easy to put in the water and transport. Weight: 99lb.
