Optimist Club Racer – Complete Kit
Clark Mills designed the original Optimist Pram in 1947. His intention was to offer a simple boat that children could use to learn to sail and build themselves. We chose to name our version of the Optimist the “Club Racer” to reflect the original idea behind the design. The Club Racer is 99% the same as the epoxy/wood version of the Optimist as described by the IODA standards, however, it differs in that it is much easier to build and will be more durable, and last longer.
NOTE: There are no plans for the Club Racer, only a kit that includes detailed building notes.
Here is what is included:
- Complete CNC kit
