The O’Pen Bic is an exciting new single handed boat designed for young sailors looking for an exciting step up from a Sabot or Optimist pram trainer. The Bic hull is a self-bailing design with a centerboard. The hull construction is roto-molded plastic and the mast is a fiberglass/epoxy composite. The Bic is very responsive, easy to accelerate and quick to right after capsize.

Silver Gate Junior Sailing is very proud of its fleet of boats. Our adult member volunteers work hard to keep the fleet in top condition so that the kids have a trouble-free time on the water. We offer a variety of boats for the kids to explore including the very popular O’Pen Bic and our new RS Fevas. We were the first club junior program in San Diego to offer the O’Pen Bic 5 years ago and now are the first with the exciting RS Feva.
