    Laser Cockpit Autobailer "Not class legal for racing" . . . What?

    Lali I think you need to relax. It's more about getting numbers on the water than getting giddy over whether their gear is not quite acceptable or not. Personally all my gear is legal but I don't get upset with anyone who's gear isn't. Maybe they can't afford to pay double for everything after all.

    Of course it does Lali. Most clubs in UK just accept the 'practice' sails for racing because it is more important to have more numbers on the water rather than tell people to stay at home because they are fake laser sailors lolz.

    Hi, Does anyone know where the medal races for 2008 are online? The Finn race was excellent to watch but I can't see it anywhere. Laser race was pretty light from memory. Cheers

    Sailing with a hernia

    Hi all, I'm chuffed there's a thread on this! I've just been diagnosed with an inguinal hernia but am now waiting 4 weeks before seeing the specialist. The GP reckons i'm fine to crack on as I am (unless it hurts) but it's difficult to convey how much stress a breezy sail can cause when hiking...

    Hi all, Do you think the ideal weight has moved up with the new Mark 2 sail? I've heard some people say you need to be heavier than the standard go to weight of 80kg. Thoughts?
