    I see from today's news and forums that the sb3 class have managed to divorce themselves from LP. That must be a massive relief for them. Does anyone know the story?

    Why can we not do the same thing with the Laser 1 and get a company that actually cares, carries stock, is run by sailors rather than that bunch of muppets at LP?

    It sounds as if the SB3 (now SB20) change was driven by the designer according to this report. He appointed a different builder and set up a new organization to handle global sales and marketing. I suspect that when Global Sailing bought the design rights for the Laser from Bruce Kirby they had a similar plan in mind.
