Dinghy simulators  
for younger children


Dinghy simulators, entertaining and thrilling without getting wet!

Securely lashed on jacks that reproduce the movement of waves and water, an Optimist and a Twiner await the valiant sailors ready for this action-packed realistic sailing experience! Set the sail, steer, tack, heel the boat...


This simulator can reproduce everything that a sail boat can do exactly as if it was on water and in real time. Except this time, there’s no chance of getting wet! An instructor is at your side to explain the safety rules and provide a few tips.


Maiden voyage in an Optimist
