October 04, 2018 1 min read

Recently Sailing Chandlery sponsored sailor and 2018 Laser national champion Sam Whaley recorded a video with the RYA about Laser sailing and his top tips.

It was a very windy recording at the Southampton Boat show on the Laser Performance stand.

Sam's top Laser sailing tips:

  1. Toe Strap - have it adjustable, lose in windy conditions, tight in the light
  2. Body position - Get forward in light winds when going upwind
  3. Main sheet - Find a mainsheet you're comfortable with for all wind conditions
  4. Control lines - Have good systems which adjust freely
  5. Tiller - get a great tiller, Sam recommends the Laser Performance carbon tiller
