Strict one-design for one person. Crew weight of 65-85Kg (10-13.5 stone). Designed in 1971, and now raced through-out the UK and the rest of the world, with numbers close to 190,000. Fibreglass hull. Available from around £500 to £4000. This is the number one single hander in the world, providing great racing at any level from complete beginner through to best-in-the-world Olympic standard. At Burghfield we regularly get fleets of over 20, with up to 75 different boats racing in any one series. The Laser is an ideal boat if you are on your own, as it is sailed at almost every club through-out the UK. Boats and spares are regularly available from our on-site chandlery.
Continuing the Laser story, you can change the mast and sail to a smaller Radial rig, and race a Laser even if you are not heavy enough to control a full Laser, making it an ideal performance racing boat for juniors.
