The New Laser Cascais Sailing Dinghy is Coming

It's been a little while coming and ever since we heard about this new boat being created by Laser Performance we've been excited about the arrival of the Laser Cascais.


Designed by Bill Tripp the Cascais is named with a nod to fun sailing, beach and sea. The old north French cai or “sand bank” – quay in English – and cais in Portuguese – also pays homage to the Portuguese coastal resort town of Cascais, which is renowned as a world-class sailing venue and host of numerous international sailing events and races. LaserPerformance is proud that the Cascais is the first of several boats developed and built in Portugal.
