I sail an old 1981 Laser Standard with the original kit...

    Is it possible to Single Hand a Laser Bahia

    So I am a big fan of Dinghys such as the Laser Bahia, Sport 14 and Wayferer (and on occasion Redwings). I love the feel of racing through the waves in Boats bigger than Fevas and Topaz. We have a decent number of sailors in the Handicap. However occasionally I don't have a crew when I am...

    Why do racers have their sails so low?

    I was wondering why racers have their sails almost to the deck level? Is it just to reduce the heeling force, or is there something else going on? And if it is just to reduce heeling, then in light wind it would seem you could attach the halyard lower on the spar (thus raising the sail higher...
