    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.

    “Practice” sails, blades etc.

    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.

    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...

    Ideal Weight

    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?

    Mark II Summary

    I've sailed this for a while now and my conclusions are: Below 8 knots: it is slower than Mark I 8-12 knots: it is the same as mark I 12 knots +: it is faster that mark I Keeping it simple that's where I think it pitches but would love any other feedback....
