I know that it is related to bad hydraulic flow on your foils and loose fiting within your daggerboard trunk. if like me, you do not race your Laser, enjoy it. On a reach (or on any other point of sail), I constantly try to go as fast as I can, but on a reach you can make the boat "sing", then I...
