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.
