It is an Olympic qualifing year and the US Nationals is limited to 150 boat!!! This just doesn't make sense and add to that the number is combined 4.7, Radials and Full rigs. The Radials and Full rigs should have separate Nationals if that is the case. Total debacle in my opinion. I tried to register only to be told that more than a month prior to the event registration is closed. I expect better from the Laser class. Some great sailors won't even be able to attend. I think it discredits the winner since a sailor that might have beaten them was not able to attend because they limited the number of boats without considering any type of ranking system in the process. The laser class is not allowing for the best possible competition using the current process. Disappointment abounds. Who made this decision anyway?
