Vanguard Laser

It's no secret that many of the world's top sailors perfected their skills in the Laser. Olympic Medalists, America's Cup Helmsmen, and Collegiate All-Americans all raced the ultimate one-design. With over 170,000 boats constructed to date, the Laser is the Gold standard in single-handed, one-design sailing. The Laser, designed by Bruce Kirby, was built on the philosophy that the sailor wins the race, not the boat. Every Laser in the world is identical. Strict class rules guarantee that it is the sailor, not the equipment, that makes the difference. Laser racing is a true test of skill.

The hull shape, blades, and rig combine to create the ultimate racing machine. The Laser is a challenging boat that rewards athleticism, subtle steering and trimming techniques and tactical excellence. It's no wonder the International Sailing Federation awarded the Laser Olympic status!

If it's racing you want, we've got plenty. The International Laser Class works in conjunction with the North American Regional office to provide top-flight racing events for sailors of all ages and skill levels from the local club level to the national level and even on to the world and Olympic level. There are more than 1000 Laser events to choose from each year. The class magazine "Laser Sailor" will keep you up to date on future events, scores from past events, and helpful racing tips.

Laser sailing is an investment in skills that will last you a lifetime, skills that apply to any boat you choose to sail. Laser sailing is also a community of sailors from around the world who love to race. When you are ready to race, get into a laser.


  • The International Laser Class hosts more events in more nations than any other one-design class in the world. In North America alone you can choose from more than 1000 events each year. Whether you choose to race in local club events or international championships there is always something for everyone. The class magazine "Laser Sailor" will always keep you up-to-date on future events, scores, and tips to improve your laser sailing.
  • The International Laser Class Association and the North American office run 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.
