Laser 2 or Laser Pico?

Thread starter #1
Dear all,
I am about to rent a Laser: the renter has only a Laser 2 or a Laser Pico, and he does not allow the use of the trapeze. On the Laser 2, I would be sailing in an average wind of about 12 knots without trapeze, and I weigh 65 kilos. I think that these are not be the best conditions to sail a laser 2 single handed, and I start to think that it would be wiser to opt for the Laser Pico.

What do you guys think?

Best,
James

That's a little bit like choosing between a sports car and a Yugo. As far as single-handing a Laser 2, I would say you are little too light. Unless you really know what you are doing, you will struggle even in 12 knots. If those are the choices, go for the Pico.

Thank you for your advice.
