The Laser Class - Love Speed? This boat is for you! The Laser dances across the lake in light to medium winds and is a challenge in heavy winds for the most agile.  Subtle steering, trimming techniques and tactical excellence will bring you rewarding speed and also help keep you upright!  The laser is a single-handed racing dingy.  All Laser boats are virtually identical whether they are brand-new or 10 years old, making it the sailor that wins the race, not the boat.  This boat is fun for all ages and sizes; it can be sailed or raced with a Standard sail or Radial (smaller sail) for those that want less of a challenge.  This Olympic class boat is sailed by both men and women in national and international levels.  It’s due to its lightness and ease of sailing that there are over 200,000 laser boats worldwide, which makes it the worlds most popular adult and youth sailing boat.   We have laser owners who attend the racing events and others who just meet to have fun sailing on the lake on a sunny afternoon.  SLSC welcomes you to come sail a Laser and get out on the water!
