We are proud to have associated with our events ...

The Laser is one of the most popular single-handed dinghies in the world. There have been more than 215,000 boats sold worldwide. A commonly cited reason for its popularity is that it is robust, and simple to rig and sail, and in addition to its durability; it’s also very fast. The Laser also provides very competitive racing due to the very stringent class association controls which eliminate any difference in hull, sails and equipment.

The term “Laser” is often used to refer to the Laser Standard (the largest sail area available for the Laser hull) sailed by men. The Laser became a men’s Olympic class boat in the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta and remains an Olympic class today.
