Every Laser in the world is identical. The strict one-design class rules ensure this remains true, making it the sailor that wins the race, not the boat. The Laser is a challenging boat that rewards athleticism, subtle steering and trimming techniques, as well as tactical excellence. It is a singlehanded Olympic class boat, also sailed at club, national and international levels.
Laser racing is nothing less than one-design competition in its purest form. The Laser boasts a long list of veterans who are Olympic Medalists, America’s Cup Helmsman, and Collegiate All-Americans. Laser racing provides competitors the opportunity to race against sailors at the national level and emphasizes the skills necessary for anyone who aspires to reach this level. It’s no wonder the International Sailing Federation awarded the Laser Olympic status!
