    Mounting a go pro

    I am most interested in the setup they use in this video...check out around 26 to 32 seconds into the clip for some decent looks. http://www.youtube.com/user/roostersailing#p/u/5/lCXvCGINOcA

    Laser Trailer Opinions

    I really like my Right-On trailer. Very easy to load and unload. Plus I believe they have just developed an add-on structure to carry a second Laser.

    Southern Cal Sailing

    Thanks for the replies. I will indeed be in San Diego on New Year's weekend but don't have my class legal sail yet...so no regatta's for me until then.:(

    Southern Cal Sailing

    Well now I know for certain where I am headed in So Cal....going to San Diego. So with this more specific location is there any advice on a good launching area?

    Southern Cal Sailing

    I will be making a trip to Southern California in the coming weeks and hoping to bring my Laser along. We haven't finalized where exactly (could be OC area, San Diego, MDR). My question is what area has the best public access for launching a Laser? Any good (read as safe) locations to beach...

    Allstate Laser destruction

    It looks like all the "damage" to the hull is computer generated to me and if you look closely on full screen you can see the sail looks like it is already pre-torn. On a side note that will show my lack of knowledge----do class legal sails have the "window" on them. The one in that...

    Right On Trailer

    I just finished an approximately 2300 mile round trip to pick up my first boat with my trailer and it performed beautifully. I pretty much just kept the speed around 65MPH but did have a few bouts of 70-80MPH when my mind was wandering and I forgot that I was towing a trailer.....obviously the...

    Right On Trailer

    My only experience so far has been with assembling one (which pretty straight forward) but I am about to put it to through its paces soon. I will be travelling with it on a 2000 mile round trip to pick up my first boat in about 3 weeks.:) I can report back after that trip.

    Sailing Gear Suggestions

    Thanks for all of the replies...they have all been very helpful. I will definitely ask the local cat fleet to see what they might recommend as well as bide my time. Thanks again

    Sailing Gear Suggestions

    Thanks for the reply. December-Feb can be cooler (air temperature-wise) than the averages I listed--dipping into the lower 40's and even upper 30's on occasion. Are there any specific products that would be recommended for the various temperatures? I have looked a bit on-line but don't know...

    Michael, Thanks for the advice. I have never attempted anything remotely like this (indeed I am not what one considers "handy" in any way). I anticipate that the electrical portion will be the most trying to my patience. But being that I don't have a boat yet, I am certainly not in a rush...

    Sailing Gear Suggestions

    I am new to Laser sailing and sailing in general (don't have a boat yet but that will be changing in the next few months) and I am not certain what gear would be advisable for the below weather conditions. There doesn't seem to be any organized Laser club at my location to help me with my...
