    No Excuses Now! New Sail....

    Don't worry, you will certainly find something like "The wind was all over the place", " I'm too light for this kind of wind (I wish I could say that!!! :p )" or "This guy got lucky with the last shift" and so on. I guess we can come up with an infinite number of excuses to explain sub...

    Laser Prices

    Well emilebr, That is an interesting concept. How much would a laser cost in terms of beers? ;) After very scientific calculation I guestimate that here it would cost somewhere around 2,200 beers (in a bar!!!) That's a thought evening :rolleyes: Ciao François

    Yachts & Yachting article (Dec. 04)

    I just bought the December edition of Yacht & Yachting (from the UK). Great issue with lots of dinghy coverage and above all, a nice article about the Laser. It warms my thoughts on such cold days. Is that magazine always as good? It is a great change from the US "big boat" magazines...

    Wow! I have rarley seen someone read by-laws with such attention to details. Great work! Although I do not have the ability to comment on the constitutionality aspects, I am certainly worried by the fact that there seem to be a bias to creat an "elite" controlled organisation. As an...

    Laser Radial Worlds Bottom Section

    I may be missing something but from what Tom wrote, this is not an ILCA's mistake but a builder's mistake. And if a builder sold parts or a boat that is not class legal, it should, as suggested by Tom, replace the illegal part or boat... My two cents... François

    Silva 103 P

    Hi, I have a nice Silva 103 P made to be fixed to the mast of my old I14. Is it possible to retrofit it to be used on a laser? It should not be that difficult but I was woundering if anyone had done it and how! Thanks François
