    Hull/Sail Numbers, have we hit 200k?

    Thanks for all the info guys and gals. Really the question was nothing more than to occupy my mind as I watch it snow here in the Upper Mindwest, USA. SailingMania and AlanD, you guys make very good points, of course I don't race on that level, I don't even race Lasers full time. For...

    Hull/Sail Numbers, have we hit 200k?

    I'm sure most will think this is a silly question but I suppose I'll ask anyway: Have we hit hull # 200,000? I don't race much (once a year at best) in the Laser and have yet to see one. Just curious. Thanks. Dan

    Sails...I'm going THERE again...

    Look at those sails side by side. I don't think the North submission is all that much an improvement from the current. The Hyde on the other hand really addresses the problems of the sail. Assuming the Hyde sail performs just like the current class legal sail and improves it's durability...

    Books- Rules

    I agree with Yellow that it may be worth the wait for the '09-'12 rulebook to come out. It should be published and distributed this fall I would expect. At that time get the rulebook itself and Dave Perry's latest book explaining the rules (i'm sure it'll be out about the same time)

    Swearing at competitors

    When I was younger I had a real problem biting my tough when things got close and tough and on many more than one occasion lashed out at other competitors or my crew (depending on what boat I was sailing). I was finally approached by a coach from another team that I greatly respected, he said...

    Leeway ?

    General rule of thumb is foot then point. Get the foils working and going fast then go for height.
