FOR FUN, RECREATION, PERFECTION & RACING!
O’pen Skiff celebrated its 16th birthday in 2022, under the Tahe Sports name! Designed specifically for juniors, our little dinghy has blown a big breath of fresh air through our sailing world, close to the new-generation skiff concept, very fast and very simple.
100% open, self-bailing, rapid and responsive, with an up-to-date versatile rig, the O'pen Skiff offers kids a machine that delivers maximum fun while helping them learn the skills and reflexes to enjoy racing on current, high-performance equipment.
Hundreds of sailing clubs around the world have opted for the O'pen Skiff, for a new, fun way of teaching sailing to appeal to youngsters attracted to new sail sports.
The O'pen Skiff has also ruffled the feathers of the traditional race scene, with race formats and simplified rules that focus more on fun, sportsmanship, and improvement, than just race results. Innovative courses and rules, on-water refereeing, and even freestyle encourage participation and a variety of sailing skills.
As a result, the O'pen Skiff Class has seen rapid growth in many European countries, USA, Australia, New Zealand, as well as others.
The O'pen Skiff has become the go-to junior sailboat in several countries where sailing interest has been stunted by 60 year old boat designs and over emphasis on elite competition. But the greatest attribute of the O'pen Skiff is that kids LOVE them.
The fast, planing hull of the Open BIC gives a dynamic sailing experience of a true dinghy that heels. Being at the helm of this powerful machine gives you the same excitement normally experienced on a boat for adults. With its 60-foot Open design, including a totally open self draining stern, even capsizing is fun! Young sailors are fully independent on the water and will be proud to sail such a modern-looking and elegant boat, one that both sails and looks like the boat of todays champions.On the hull, the shaped daggerboard and rudderblade, and all deck equipment and fittings are worthy of the most modern dinghies: Ronstan Cunningham pulleys and Ronstan mainsheet ratchet block, Robline ropes.... The rig includes a fully-battened North 4,5m2 mono-film sail with mast pocket, similar to that of a windsurf board. Rigged on an epoxy mast, the sail has been designed with an open leech to give sailors maximum control and performance in windy conditions.
