For almost 50 years, the Laser has offered racing sailors of all skill levels and ages a reliable, fast, and simple boat. Since 1996, the Laser has been a recognized Olympic Class boat. The Race Rig is best for more experienced and heavier sailors but can be changed to a Radial or 4.7 by merely changing the sail and bottom spar.
The Radial rig is less overpowering and uses a smaller cut sail and shorter/more flexible bottom spar. Smaller adults, women, and youth often enjoy this rig.
The Laser 4.7 rig offers up-and-coming sailors a unique chance to develop skills in the same hull that's used for the Olympics. With 19% less sail area than the Radial and a shorter pre-bent lower mast, the Laser 4.7 is easier to depower and more manageable. This makes it perfect for Optimist graduates and other light sailors.
This Laser Race is Ice Blue comes as a sailaway package with boat, spars, sail, etc. and can be converted from a Race to a Radial or 4.7 for the same price of $6265.
