    I'm getting a new laser this week

    Yay!!! a new boat :) You got a really good price for your 151 boat, 5800 AUD for a boat of that age is really good money... BUT you'll lost it all one your new one, i think a new Laser standard or radial rig here costs about 9500 AUD with covers/dolly ready to sail so that costs a bit more over...

    What do you eat after a sail?

    I usually enjoy a beef pie and a coke after a good sail.

    How to buy a competitive boat

    There are plenty of great boats out there that arent new, and some people can't afford a new boat. The most important thing is the mast step, then probably making sure the hull is stiff and doesnt leak.

    My Laser refurb (#2)

    Nice work, the orange hull looks really nice. At least the black is....... different.

    Main sheet cleats

    I got some ronstan mini cleats and they work a treat. Even though i use them rarely while racing, when I'm tired after a real blowy day i tend to use them on the way back to shore. It gives you a free hand if something needs to be done while sailing too.

    Mast retaining line

    I need some advice on a mast retaining line, as my boat isnt legal at the moment without it. Any system will do, i did search 'Mast retainer' but the thumbnails wouldnt display, so please post your pics if you have any. I dont care if the system isnt the best, as long as it works, because...

    Laser stories

    One day it was blowing about 20 knots on this lake i used to sail at. It was my first time in any sort of strong wind so it was a challenge. Anyway cutting to the chase, after about 20 minutes on the water, and sailing casually, i was reaching and decided to gybe but no!!! My boom didn't stop...

    Laser's point of view

    Regular Laser or Radial

    If you can't afford both, which is in my opinion the best option, I would buy the radial rig.
