    Epic day with our lasers

    Michael, I confirmed with our race committee that there unfortunately will not be a Friday night race this weekend. It's too late in the season to get the racing finished before sunset. So there will only be the Norcal races held Saturday.

    Epic day with our lasers

    Hi Michael, If you're interested in official racing, the Laser Norcal Championships will be held down in Santa Cruz on 9/19 by SCYC. I'm checking with our race committee to see if they are planning to hold a club race on Friday night as warm up event. We've historically done this in the past...

    Wanted: Laser Rudder, Rudderhead, Tiller, and extension parts

    I believe they had a decent turnout with 20+ boats between the full and radial fleets. I wasn't racing but was out Saturday afternoon at the same time as the regatta and unfortunately the weekend's heat wave killed the wind so most of the races were done in fairly light conditions. I don't know...

    CALIFORNIA Wanted: Laser Rudder, Rudderhead, Tiller, and extension parts

    Hi everyone, I'm trying to find a used rudder and rudderhead assembly at a reasonable price. I manage the Laser boat program at the Santa Cruz Yacht Club and one of our members managed to lose their rudder while sailing over the weekend when they capsized and didn't have the rudder fully...

    Old Laser help requested?

    Welcome to the old boat club! I just picked up the '74 laser from the thread linked above and found myself asking a lot of the same questions as you in this past week. If you want to replace all of your lines, you could check out this kit from West Coast Sailing Laser Line Kit *Recreational*...

    70's Laser Value - Is this a fair price?

    LaLi, yes that's exactly the swivel cleat that is on my boat. Based on the comments about it in the other thread it sounds like it's pretty terrible to use in heavy winds. I'll leave it for now and give it a shot but will likely upgrade to the ratchet block relatively soon. Thanks for the...

    70's Laser Value - Is this a fair price?

    Well I picked up the boat yesterday. The boat itself is a "10 footer"; has expected scratches and nicks in the bottom gel coat and some wear on the deck but overall good condition for a 50 year old boat. The centerboard is painted wood and the entire bottom edge of it has worm through the paint...

    70's Laser Value - Is this a fair price?

    Thanks for the feedback guys. The lack of a dolly is definitely a bummer but I have a longbed pickup I plan to use to transport the boat to the lake house; once there it only needs to go 25 yards from the garage to the beach for launch. I'll probably do a DIY budget dolly build using PVC pipe...

    70's Laser Value - Is this a fair price?

    Hi everyone, this is my first post here. I'm a recreational laser sailor that has been sailing on my local club's boats for club regattas and casual sailing over the last three years. I've been looking to pick up my own boat for some time now primarily to sail on Clear Lake in northern CA. A...
