    Aussie Laser Sailors

    Hey Alysum - I'd say go for it. Sure there will be all the top guys there, but the state fleets normally have good depth, and people still learning to sail in reggatas. You will no doubt learn a lot. Great waterway to sail on too.

    Are Intensity Sails Faster? Etc.

    Re: Shaping an Intensity sail Boathouse - you have just as much reason for bias as Intensity. You are after all motivated by the same thing - financial profit. As such I thought you would support the free market economy? Obviously "Big Brother Laser" has had a word in your ear?

    Clew Sleeve Not Sliding

    Mine jammed totally mid race in the first heat of the last regatta I sailed. I couldn't get back to the beach and had to sail the whole day with the outhaul stuck in one spot. I have since gone back to the strap, and had no probs. I'm sure the strap holds the leech tighter as well. Mostly...
