I've got a question for you racers out there. Today I had the opportunity to race against a bunch of Lasers. While I was getting hammered for 4 races, I noticed a few differences in the way the boats respond, and I'm wondering if anyone had experienced the same things, or if I've identified some new flaw in my sailing skills. I found that almost universally, Lasers can point 5-10 degrees higher into the wind than I can on my Sunfish. This makes it nearly impossible to keep up with them on an upwind leg. On reaches and runs I've found that I'm actually slightly faster than many of the Lasers out there, but my upwind performance against them was so terribly bad that I couldn't make up the deficit. Has anyone else seen things like this. Any insights would be greatly appreciated.
