  1. They are not Lasers. They are called Racer(obviously it´s a clone) . Tested to have the same speed, weight and last longer. They race in regattas for One Person Dinghy, where English Lasers, Gammas, Torches, Racers, L99, practice parts, Intesity sails etc. are welcome. Imagine a place where a Gamma or a Laser cost US$16.000 and your money worth 4 times less, and you like to sail a one person dinghy......what can be done??
  2. Not everywhere. Club Racers training boat. Infused decks. Double bias fabric. Same weight.

  4. Q: Will boats from the newly-named builders be sold under the LASER brand? A: No. In order to avoid trade mark issues and to comply with the requirements of European competition law, all current and future ILCA-approved builders will sell boats under a new brand name. ILCA and the current approved builders are finalizing the intellectual property details for the new brand, including fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory (FRAND) licensing rules. ILCA expects to announce the new brand name in the next four weeks.

    I don't think it´s only about math. It´s aerodinamics. Perhaps the sails shape are more efficient. Easer to use. Imagine a full rig Laser with a 9 M sail. Or an Aero 5 faster than a Radial or a 7 faster than an Standard. 2018 RYA Portsmouth Yardsticks RS Aero 9 - 1019 D-Zero - 1029 RS Aero 7 - 1068 Laser - 1098 RS Aero 5 - 1129 Laser Radial - 1142

    Laser C5 Rig

    We have to thanks having someone, like @JulianB ,to develop those rigs. Nobody complains about paying for something that cost what it worth(Carbon rigged laser or Aero). Make lighter is more expensive, but make it last longer is not. Its the same with carbon framed bikes. The dark side of a monopoly is to be overpriced with something and be forced to use it to play the game, but anyone decides what they want. Would be nice having those C rigs in Brazil , where Young sailors are moving to classes with more fun and Laser is becoming a "master" class.
