Laser History - 40 Years Ago

Thread starter #1
For those who like a bit of Laser history, I came across this very short clip from the 1979 Laser Worlds, which were held in Perth, West Australia in January 1979

I am fairly certain there was a proper 25 minutes film made of the event, which must be out there in a film library somewhere.

And I have attached the report of the event from Beam Reach - the class magazine at the time.

I think that the photo on the front cover must be one of my favourites of the Laser - there isn't a much better visual advertisement for the class. It was taken by Jeff Martin - not just a sailor, administrator, race officer, writer......he will be much missed by the class.
