Designed back in the early 1970's by Bruce Kirby, the laser is the most popular sailing dinghy on the planet, and this year will see the 200,000th laser rolled out.
..and for those of you wondering what a Laser is....and have'nt been watching the Olympic coverage...
The Laser is popular throughout Australia. The laser can be sailed off the beach with the family right through to competing at the Olympics, making it a challenge to Sailors of any level of ability.
The laser has the option of 3 different rigs, making it accessible to people of all shapes and sizes.
- 4.7 Rig - Designed for smaller sailors 50-65kg. Great for kids moving out of junior classes such as the Optimist
- Radial 5.7 Rig - Used as the womans single handed Olympic class, a great rig for sailors of 65-80kg
- Full (Standard) Rig - Used as the mens singlehanded class at the Olympics, perfect for sailors 75-90kg.
