The Origami sailing dinghy uses a pivoting lee board (placed on starboard but it could go on port if desired) so it is ensured of a good windward performance and a spacious interior. The square shape of the dinghy gives surprising stability and its light weight means a responsive sailing experience. The Origami sailing dinghy is a surprisingly good little craft which is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face. And at the end of the day, it packs away in moments to a tiny package that can be stowed almost anywhere.

The Origami can easily be converted at any time to a great little sailing boat if you wish. Full instructions are included for free in the plans.

You'll need an Optimist mast and sail which will need to be cut down a little (full instructions are given or you can buy a kit and make your own sail). You'll also need a few bits of plywood and an Optimist rudder.
