ILCA Class Legal Parts

Over the past few years or so there has been much change in the World of Laser sailing. Laser Performance, for who we are an authorised dealer, are no longer a class legal builder of boats. This means their boats are no longer ILCA class legal.


This has caused lots of confusion for sailors and the class is now moving forward with essentially the same boat under a different name. The boat is now called the ILCA, which stands for International Laser Class Association. The reason for the name change is because Laser Performance own the right to the term "Laser", so by not renewing the builders licence the International class could no longer use the name Laser.


But what does this mean?

Essentially to keep it short Laser Performance can no longer issue class legal hulls or sails, all other parts are fine and will continue to be Laser and ILCA class legal where the blue badge is displayed on items.


Over the years here at Sailing Chandlery we have also changed. We used to supply parts from Laser Performance but now supply them from Devoti, who are an ILCA class legal builder.


This means that if you purchase any ILCA part from Sailing Chandlery it will be fully class legal and can be raced up to the top level officially. The class legal stickers are present on foils, spars and on other items where you would expect to find them and now come in the form of a white ILCA sticker with QR code.


We understand that across the UK market there are sailors who would prefer a replica part and they are also available through our website, please pay attention to the product descriptions which clearly list whether a part if replica or ILCA class legal. You will not be able to sail ILCA events with replica parts.


Please have a detailed read of product descriptions before you purchase.
