I have heard lots of rumours about Laser Performance Europe being, or going, bust. Their website shop looks like Old Mother Hubbard's cupboard and the whole place does not look lived in. I dropped them an email 2 or 3 weeks ago and have heard nothing back. Are these the same guys that ILCA suggested that we back in that vote?? I am truly astounded that money can not be made from the most popular sailboat in the world. When benchmarked against sailboats.co.uk or roostersailing.com in the UK the LPE outfit looks like the circus has come to town. I am all for supporting the builders but not if they treat us like sh*t. It smells like big bellied bankers or private equity has got their hands on the tiller. Or maybe nobody is at the helm? Does anybody have the lowdown on what is going on?
