Laser Vago Sail Numbers

Getting your sail numbers on your Laser Vago correct is important, we see so many sailors who throw them onto a sail and don't realise they are wonky or in the wrong place until they hoist the sail for all to see.

Below are instructions on how to add sail numbers to your Laser Vago sail, we've included the Standard and Vago Race sail.

Preparation

As with any boat maintenance task preparation is key. Here is what we recommend you have:

  • 300m sail numbers - explore our stock of sail numbers
  • Time to do the task, allow yourself at least one hour
  • A clear large area to work in
  • A hard surface underneath the sail
  • A tape measure
  • A metre rule
  • Tape
  • If you are using digital sail numbers, pre cut them before you start - have a look at our guide on using digital sail numbers

Laser Vago Standard Sail

  1. Lay the sail on a flat surface starboard side up
  2. The numbers on the starboard side are always higher than the port side.
  3. Measure 60mm down, from the seam directly below the logo
  4. Mark a line, parallel to the seam
  5. Measure 100mm in from the leech on this line
  6. The first number is positioned 100mm in from the leech and with the top of the number on the line parallel to the seam
  7. The numbers should be 60mm apart
  8. Work your way across until all numbers have been applied
  9. Turn over the sail and position the port numbers 60mm below the top seam of the panel below. The numbers are parallel to the seam

XD Race Sail

  1. Lay the sail on a flat surface starboard side up
  2. The numbers on the starboard side are always higher than the port side
  3. Measure 200mm down, from the second batten pocket from the bottom of the sail
  4. Mark a line parallel to the batten pocket. Use tape as you won't see the pencil marks
  5. Measure 100mm in from the leech on this line
  6. The first number is positioned 100mm in from the leech and with the top of the number on this tape line
  7. The numbers are 60mm apart
  8. Turn over the sail and position the port numbers 60mm below the starboard numbers and parallel to them
