Hi was rigging my laser the other day and realised the controls for the cunningham and outhaul both run either side of kicker. as in laser sailing you need to keep a bit of kicker on downwind, (it was also quite windy) i decided to leave outhaul on tight instead of struggling to pull it back in at end of downwind leg. as i let out the sail it found the kicker was tightening the outhaul, or the cunningham on each tack. it sprang to mind why does lasers have the controls led to the cockpit in that way? e.g. why can't the outhaul be on a cleat just ibfront of the mainsheet under the boom where you can just grab it and pull keeping the same purchase. keeping the kicker in the same place, and the cunnungham should be led to a different kicker system with another cam cleat on the side for the cunningham to be adjusted like the kicker. if anyone has an explanation that would be greatly appreciated, or any opinions.
