ONE-DESIGN RACING AT ITS FINEST
Every Laser in the world is identical. The strict one-design class rules ensure this remains true, making it the sailor that wins the race, not the boat. The Laser is a challenging boat that rewards athleticism, subtle steering and trimming techniques, as well as tactical excellence. It is a singlehanded Olympic class boat, also sailed at club, national and international levels. Because each Laser around the world is identical, races are won by sailing ability - not by equipment advantages.
The Laser was created to get sailors to the water with minimal fuss. It has a lightweight hull that's easy to carry and cartop. The two-part free-standing mast and sleeved sail make the boat easy to rig. And the simple layout means sailing is a breeze.
INTERCHANGEABLE FORMULA MEANS YOUR LASER GROWS WITH YOU
When you race a Laser, one hull goes a long way. By changing just the lower spar and sail, you can convert any boat from Laser to Radial to 4.7. The advantage of this interchangeable formula is that you can easily switch boats as you become older, heavier or more experienced. Each rig helps you prepare for the next, so you get a step-by-step progression that can take you all the way from beginning racer to World Champion!

One Laser sailor in Honolulu recently recorded the first Laser speed record at 16.8 knots, or 28 feet per second.
The International Laser Class hosts more events in more nations than any other one-design class in the world. In North America alone there are more than a thousand events each year. Whether you choose to race in local club events or international championships there is an event for everyone. The International Laser Class magazine, Laser World and the North American class magazine Laser Sailor will always keep you up-to-date on future events, results, and tips to improve your Laser sailing.
The International Laser Class Association runs a circuit of Masters events for Laser sailors over 35 years of age. The Masters circuit culminates in the Laser Masters World Championship which is held annually. The Laser Masters racing circuit is the largest and most heavily attended masters racing group of any one-design class in the world.
