About the Laser

The Laser is the Worlds most popular sailing dinghy, you would be hard pushed to visit a dinghy sailing club across the World that doesn't have a Laser in their dinghy park.

The reason the Laser boat is popular is because of it's flexibility, the three rig options allow sailors from 35kg up to fully grown adults to sail the same hull but with different sail variations. The rigs are very easy to swap and means you can grow with the boat or adjust the rig to the conditions to get your perfect sailing experience.

Designed in the 1969 the boat was initially designed as a car toppable sailing dinghy and its journey has now led it to be the Olympic boat for ladies and men. 

Whether you're looking for a boat to sail casually, or a boat to race competitively it's very likely the Laser will meet your needs.
