Fleet - Laser

Laser cropThanks to the generosity of the Courageous Community, we acquired a fleet of 12 brand-new Lasers in 2010, complete with Full, Radial, and 4.7 Rigs. The International Laser Class sailboat, is a popular single-handed, one-design class of small sailing dinghy. The design, by Bruce Kirby, emphasizes simplicity and performance. Now manufactured by Laser Performance, the Laser is one of the most popular single-handed dinghies in the world. As of 2011, there are more than 250,000 boats worldwide. A commonly cited reason for its popularity is that it is robust, simple to rig and sail. The Laser also provides very competitive racing due to the very tight class association controls which eliminate differences in hull, sails and equipment.
