YOUTH SAILING MADE EXCITING
The Nacra 15 Youth Olympic is a performance catamaran used primarily for youth racing. It’s designed as a smaller version of the Nacra 17 Olympic multihull Class flagship, taking many aspects directly from its big brother, making the transition from Youth Olympic to Olympic boat a small stepping stone. Unlike the single-handed and foiling versions of the Nacra 15, the N15 Olympic is a
One Design Class optimized for competitive racing on the highest levels. The Nacra 15 carries two highly engineered curved dagger boards that provide lift. This provides an extra dimension in sailing, as the Nacra 15 is a semi-foiling catamaran. More lift means reduced drag means more speed and excitement. The perfect catamaran to catch youngsters sailing for life.
The highest podium in youth sports is what the Nacra 15 Olympic was built for. The scaled down version of the Nacra 17 Olympic features the same gear, made specifically available for youth sailors. With a large platform, a little bit more weight and semi-foiling ability, we’ve made the Nacra 15 Olympic a lot safer, while still maintaining that challenge-to-sail feel.
High performance and high quality. When you get a Nacra 15 sail from Performance Sails you can rest assured that you’ve got one of the best multihull sails in the world. All Nacra 15 sails are handcrafted according to very rigid Olympic standards. Because they produce sails for the highest podium in sports, and have done so since 2000, they hold themselves to increasingly high production standards and quality control. You will not only get one of the best sails on the market, you also get the latest in sail innovation.
A lifetime of fun
Sailing a Nacra 15 competitively provides the perfect opportunity to learn valuable communication, decision making and technical set-up skills in a high-speed environment; a great pathway for the future generation of high-performance sailing athletes.
With regular racing opportunities internationally, sailors, parents and coaches become part of a friendly community of past, present and future Nacra 15 sailors, whilst making lifelong friends with sailors from around the world!
