Laser Racing

This program is designed for sailors aged 12+ with substantial prior Opti or 420 sailing who wish to race lasers. Lasers are one of the largest one-design classes in the world and are sailed at the Olympics. They are ideal boats for sailors who have completed their Opti career and who wish to continue sailing in a single-handed class. Because of the power of the Laser, they are best suited to sailors weighing over 125 pounds. Participants in this program must provide their own Laser.

Prerequisite: Afternoon Opti, Recreational Sailing (8wk), or Sailing Director approval. Minimum of 4 participants required to run this program.

Schedule: Mon-Fri 1:00pm (Rigged & Ready) - 5:00pm
