    LP no longer an approved builder-- why?

    A lot of the load on the boats depends on the size and strength of the sailor. A smaller radial sailor abuses the hull a massive amount less than a big strong full rig sailor. Many of the top US full rig sailors buy a new LP boat each year because how quickly they wear them out. A large amount...

    LP no longer an approved builder-- why?

    As far as the soft boats are concerned it is a known fact the build quality of the LP lasers ARE worse. A 1 year old LP often has spider cracks in the hull while many 10 year vanguards don’t. That is why most of the Olympic sailors source themselves a PSA boat because they last longer, are...

    LP no longer an approved builder-- why?

    I believe that there may be more going on with LP than we think. I met a chinese sailor who said that he lived close by a factory in China that was building laser performance boats. May be possible that the LP boats aren't even built in the UK.

    Starting: shooting up to defend hole

    In any major regatta with good judges you are likely to be flagged for sculling below close hauled. It does happen but you could just as easily let the person in and build a new hole by backing up or making an up move. The good junior can make a 1 or 1.5 BL hole in a good back up and one up...

    Starting: shooting up to defend hole

    The good guys in the junior radial fleet have become very good at these moves. Even pulling up the board and backwinding the sail for a moment to make the boat sail from left to right on the line. If done properly it can turn a bad hole into a workable one, if done bad you flip. But.... It is...

    Interesting reading about a composite lower mast for the Radial

    I don't know if this has anything to with the new composite top but I have broken 3 lowers in the last year. One of them was kinda old but one was only about 7 months old. I wash out my section after every sail and keep it under a cover, but I also sail in breeze 3 days a week from November to...

    Life Vest Recommendations

    For all of the high school laser regattas, like the cressy. I sailed up there last weekend and they said that the RC would throw out anyone not wearing one.

    Q. for USA-based Laser sailors: what's USA's best area for (Laser) sailing?

    As far a good college laser sailing program, Boston College would be best. But for weather and nice conditions would Florida or Cali would win

    I would agree I have a Zhik II Pfd and it works amazing. Quite frustrating though at most of the US events they make you wear a Coast Guard approved life jacket, they are all huge catch on the boom.

    Zhik superwarm

    The skiff suit has no arms and would either need a dry top or a super warm top to keep you warm but in medium temp you can wear a thin shirt with it and not over heat. The steamer is like a full wetsuit, it will keep you warmer in the winter but you will over heat once it gets warm. I personally...

    Hiking under the grab rail when roll tacking?

    I am 6ft 2 and when I tack I put my back for into the far left or far right (far left from port to starboard and far right from starboard to port) corner of the cockpit (under the rail) this is what gives me the leverage to roll the boat on top of myself. But not an option if you don't wear...
