Laser Sailboat Parts and Equipment

Laser One Design - Rigging and Parts

The singlehanded International LaserĀ® is one of the most popular boats in sailing history, with over 190,000 hulls worldwide. This physically demanding dinghy follows strict one-design regulations and tests a sailor's endurance and finesse as much as it tests tactical skill. The boat and equipment have changed little since Bruce Kirby's original 1971 design. The powerful 15:1 cascaded vang, 10:1 cunningham, and low-friction clew sleeve make frequent fine-tune adjustments a breeze and have opened the class to a wider range of sailors.
