Landfall, a marine offshore outfitter and safety expert, entered into a partnership with the United States Optimist Dinghy Association.

The company also announced it has been named as an official North American dealership for Optiparts, the leading supplier of Optimist spars, blades, fittings and accessories.

These moves come as part of Landfall’s continued expansion into small-boat sailing in 2008. Earlier this spring the company launched DinghyLocker.com, a dedicated site within Landfallnav.com, offering equipment and technologies for competitive sailing dinghies and was named as the exclusive North American distributor for the award-winning Bluemagic Optimist.

Landfall supports the USODA as a Gold Level partner. Dinghylocker.com’s Mobile Support Center will be on-site at USODA events throughout the summer, including the USODA Nationals in Patchogue, N.Y., as an official event sponsor.

“Over the last 25 years, Landfall has established a reputation as the leading provider of navigation and safety equipment for big-boat sailors and we are proud to offer the same level of support to small boat sailors,” said Capt. Henry Marx, president of Landfall, in a statement.

Landfall, formerly Landfall Navigation, is a leading specialist in offshore outfitting, navigation and marine safety.
