I think it depends a lot on your overall ability and athleticism. Any weight can be competitive.
I max out at 125 lbs but I'd still say I'm competitive in my district (not masters). Anything over 10 knots I start to feel the disadvantages though.
So the laser.org schedule has the NA women's champs taking place in February at Lauderdale Yacht Club. I have yet to see any more info on that, nor can I find any inkling of it on the rest of the internet.
I'm starting to get concerned that my carefully planned schedule is not going to...
In terms of writing something in for the registration, I was thinking of using the name of a friend's "race team" he uses for local car racing. We're expanding the team into multiple vehicle types.
I'm glad there isn't an actual club membership rule. The closest one to me is...
Does anyone know if there are current rules within the U.S. demanding that sailors be a member of a yacht club to participate in races at other clubs? I seem to recall something like this being the case a while back, but am not sure.
Is there any qualification process for sailing the National Championships or Women's North American's? Or just show up and sail?
Don't want to drive 24 hours in February to be told I'm not qualified...
yeah, 25 knots was just my example since the organizers apparently want to be sure everyone who competes can handle up to 25.
Really, though, I have to totally depower the sail at 15-18 knots. I mean flat sail, hiking full out, and still pinching and easing. I weigh 130 lbs with all my gear...
Are the 4.7 district champs for youth only? I wish the Worlds would be open to all ages, as I'm just too small to be competitive in a radial in 25 knots. I'm considering grabbing a 4.7 rig but it is not worth it if I can't race it anywhere since I'm 28.
