The Vapor Optimist is the most popular racing sailboat for juniors.
The Vapor Optimist has been designed to be safe, durable and competitive. The skills the Optimist fosters can be directly translated into other classes later on.
The VAPOR - Why is it different from all the rest?
The Vapor Optimist is built in the US alongside the Laser, Sunfish and 420, among several other siblings. The expertise in our factory is unparalleled in the sport of sailing. As we began to see the docks crowd with Optimists from all around the globe, we set a goal for ourselves. Let’s apply our knowledge to build the best possible Optimist we know how. Oh, and let’s not charge people an arm and a leg for it.
