Red, White & Blue Fleets will have THE SAME START, and will be racing on the same course. Read more


The Laser is a single-handed racing dinghy. A big factor for the Laser dinghy’s popularity is protection by strict one-design class rules. No changes are allowed to the boat unless they are specifically permitted in the rules.

The result is that all Laser boats are virtually identical whether they are brand new or 10 years old, making it the sailor that wins the race, not the boat.
