    Soft Shackle Clew Tie Down

    Are you sure it’s legal? With the rotating beads added you surprise me. It looks to be an elegant solution but I am surprise if it’s allowed

    Can't depower the boat or keep the boom out of the water

    That should read heeling moment

    Or ease mainsheet and point lower. This gives more forward vector and less sideways vector (less healing moment)

    Olympic status

    Note also World Sailing day Laser Dinghy. Doesn’t this mean they have to be built by a Laser trade mark holder regardless of the vote just passed that should allow mon trade mark holders to build ILCA approved Dinghies. Have we just been sc****d by World Sailing again

    Laser boom gooseneck plug hole keeps widening why?

    Not sure why the vang key could effect wear on the gooseneck plug. Does the mast rotate freely? Is the mast base damaged or grit/sand in the bottom of the mast tube causing friction and stopping mast rotating. Or has there been a bad repair to the gel coat in the mast tube stopping rotation

    Got a new boom? Check your boom strap

    Shouldn’t Sailcentre be sending out replacement booms with correct width straps. Shouldn’t be down to purchasers to correct this error

    From the measurements' table in Athens (European Championship U19)...

    Mine meets rules, but then when I replaced metal strap that was designed to either catch on your life jacket when tacking obviously I checked rules to make sure it complied

    Trailex SUT 220

    I did say for new trailers. Trailers built before the date that the new rules came in can still be used with a trailer board mounted on boat transom

    Trailex SUT 220

    I don’t believe Trailer board attached to gudgeons is legal in Europe for new trailers. They have number plate mounted on sliding extension bars as part of trailer which you extend to be behind any load on the trailer

    LP no longer an approved builder-- why?

    Class Association statement does not say they are doing anything that conflicts with the construction manual. What it says is that LPE have not allowed inspections to check that they are complying

    LP no longer an approved builder-- why?

    Will be interesting to know what any new approved European builder can market the boat as. Do not LPE hold the European trademark “Laser”. Are we about to become the International Torch Association?
