    ISA Online Course UPWIND SPEED: MEDIUM Now Live!

    Yes definitely. We have some YouTube videos that might help your downwind in the meantime. Not sure where you're at exactly. This one below is a bit older but has been really popular and useful for Laser sailors.

    ISA Online Course UPWIND SPEED: MEDIUM Now Live!

    Hey thanks for writing - good question. For Medium Wind, we classify it a little more based on body position/hiking amount because different sized sailors, different fitness levels and different sailing rigs all come into play. Also you've got a bit of variance with air temps and wind force...

    Laser newbie - standard or full rig?

    We would be VERY surprised if someone splurged on a nice new vang, put some great line/blocks on it, and then regretted the decision after sailing with it for a season. Particularly if you're sailing once a week or even more. If so, just buy it. Sometimes the pros trade out lower vang unit's...

    Thanks Rob! We are so stoked to get reports like this. I hope you enjoy the medium air upwind lessons as much or more than the light wind stuff. We've tried to incorporate some things even the best sailors can learn from in each series so it's nice to hear someone like yourself can learn...

    Vang upgrade

    We did a video on calibrating / setting some reference marks on your vang awhile back that you might like. It shows you how to get a decent max ease setting, maximize the range out of the system, and setup some basic upwind reference points. The music is annoying so you may want to use subtitles...

    Is this the right place to advertise Courses?

    Yes please let us know if you would like us to discontinue the announcements on new Laser educational productions. FYI, there are a bunch of free lessons up at the course right at the moment for everyone to learn from. 4 Lessons from Medium Wind and 2 from Light Wind.

    mainsheet question

    Note if you're recreationally sailing and it gets a bit windier, the 6mm will be significantly harder on your hands. With gloves, should be ok. 7mm is a good max diameter, 6mm will be nicer if you sail most in light wind, especially downwind.
