The Victorian Laser Association (VLA), a not for profit organisation run by volunteers, has been awarded the rights to host one of the largest sailing events ever held in Australia in the summer of 2020.

This will be one of the biggest sailing events held in Australia and coincides with a number of World Championships being held in other sailing classes, in the lead up to the Olympic Games in Japan where Laser sailing is an Olympic event.
