    All about to kick off....

    All good points are I agree with one exception. Global membership of the ILCA is either static or experiencing mild growth. I think the market potential is growing faster than population growth - because of increased affluence - again an overall global phenomena. The demise of the Laser is...

    All about to kick off....

    Next item on the schedule is a motions hearing on 21 May. I don't think the majority of Laser sailing is affected. What seems to be a bigger threat is the emergence of the RS Aero - they seem to be active in most markets - but have a long way before they get anything close to the market...

    Xmas Lasers - questionable marketing

    Here's the link: http://www.santander2014.com/uploaded_files/Document_376_20140908130413_en.pdf With the advert, BS or not, it would be good to see an official response that it is BS. Be great to hear something like: according to the data at the 2014 World Champs in Santander the boats have...

    Xmas Lasers - questionable marketing

    Is that boat in the background 212699? If so, it seems that there are more than expected new Lasers being built.

    Laser Rigging help

    You hit the nail on the head LaLi (again), and in spite of what I said above about spending money, last two races I sailed in were both won by an old club boat with the old style kicker. Bottom line, racing in a boat with lesser gear is better than not racing at all!

    Laser Rigging help

    Think of it as two separate purchases... I think you'd be able to sell the vang separately if you wish when you part with your boat - it will be worth more with the right kit... because Lasers are sooo much easier to make adjustments with the new kit... think of it less as sound financial...

    Laser Rigging help

    Spend a few dollars and get a system that works! I've shared this with quite a few (I don't know the guy who made it) and get positive comments about it. Read the comments for even more tips:

    Xmas Lasers - questionable marketing

    Either way, the ILCA / UKLA should be all over it like a bad rash. Even if the differences are perceived, then it's still bad for the class. I'm hoping the ILCA gets real vocal about this.

    Seen in Yachts and Yachting forum (UK). It is on their website so doesn't look fake.

    All about to kick off....

    Just one more month to go for discovery to end. Am spending time rereading the IYRU Agreement, shaking my head and wondering about the future of the ILCA. Today being November 11 is also the 9th anniversary of the signing of the builder's contract with LaserPerformance Europe. (Quarter Moon...

    Are these class legal?

    The Laser TM is only relevant for the majority of Laser parts if the ILCA make it so via the class rules - with the exception of the hull and the sail. Everything else doesn't have to have the sunburst logo, even though some do and some don't. We can expect the manufactured cost to be less than...
