    Laser sail numbers

    Thanks for all the feed back. After sailing j22 j24 buc snipes ans some big boats a few ago, im very happy to be sailing in a "club" atmosphere here in CO. We can get 20+ lasers on Thur night. I have been promoting lots of boats, good competition which we have accomplished. Practice sails rock.
