I typed in my my info, but I'm not sure if it went through. The screen seemed to lock up.

For club affiliation, I listed "ILCA-NA".

It was the same for me. But a few minutes later I received an email from LPU saying they are currently "verifying" my application!

Did any of you who signed up for LPU/ILU start receiving emails from some outfit called "The Clymb"? It's some sort of online outdoors apparel and equipment retailer.

No, just the regular emails from Nigerian bankers who want to give me millions of dollars, and from Canadian pharmacists who think I need Viagra and Cialis.

OK, they must have gotten my e-mail from somewhere else. However if any you want access to "member-exclusive 72-hour sales on premium brands and experiences, hand-picked by our team of fellow enthusiasts and experts", drop me a line. I seem to be on the "inside" now and can get you an invite. I even get a $20 credit if you buy something. Sounds like Amway.

Hi, I registered with LPU just to see what would happen last month...I got a confirmation email reviewing my details, then nothing...Is this just a a way of building up marketing data about Laser sailors?

I thought it was an alternative to class membership (cheaper and allows LP to start to bypass ILCA who cannot even get a rule change through to help them financially). Also, should the right holder start requiring contract/payments as per the class rules then LP can ignore them as it has a direct route to the Laser fleet (through your e-mail address) and they already have their own private "Class Association" so can carry on building Lasers (as they own the trademark).

It was "hoped" that there would be an announcement about a new sail design for full rigs, but with the current mess between builder/class/ISAF, don't expect anything soon.

As far as the mess, Tracy was the best source, but IMHO, he's gone quiet/stealth since becoming the lead dog. Somewhat understandable, but frustrating non the less
