Finally, a strong class association which actively promotes and drives forward Laser sailing around the globe makes mass production of the Laser viable, keeping the cost of the boats and spares relatively low.
The Laser is challenging and it is rewarding whether it be at club level or the Olympic Games. Now widely used the Ullman laser sail has proved a popular choice for practice and club race events.
It is quick to rig and perfect for the young sailors moving out of Optimists to sailing an Olympic Class boat. Young sailors starting out in the 4.7 can move up in rigs as they grow physically and develop tactically, without the need to splash out on a completely new boat. When you take your 10 year old boat out for a local race the challenge is to work harder, hike longer, be smarter and sail better than the other Laser sailors.


Using a slightly heavier Dacron with a resin finish we can offer a durable high performance alternative to the standard laser sail. Being protected by the One Design class rules, all Laser boats are the same whether they are brand new or 10 years old, making it the sailor that wins the race, not the boat.
The one-design protection also means that your Laser will never be outdated, which explains why Lasers have such a high resale value. At the end of the race you count the number of boats behind you and you are rewarded with the knowledge that you beat them fair and square by your own skill and effort. The Laser is a challenging boat that rewards athleticism, subtle steering and trimming techniques, as well as tactical excellence. Even if there are no boats behind you the challenge is to go out next time knowing that you have the same equipment and the potential to improve.


It is a singlehanded Olympic class boat, also sailed at club, national and international levels. With nearly 200,000 boatsA in 140 countries, it is clearly the worlda€™s most popular adult and youth racing sailboat.
