I will discuss the Laser, sea trials, 2024 Olympics, etc today at 4 PM EST -- on Sailing Illustrated.
You made a big deal how the Laser "pathway" with the three rigs is original. Well... the Melges 14 and the RS Aero both have three rig sizes as well, and the D-Zero has two. They provide similar pathways, and so would the "C" rigs in the future.
(This is off-topic for this thread, but really, it's almost amusing to see how hard it seems for some that the Finn is dropping out of the Olympics. Weren't eighteen consecutive games enough?)
