    It’s slightly better than a dogs dinner πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. Don’t worry about what a old snarky English person posts, just keep enjoying sailing . πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ‘

    HobieOne with Laser rigging

    Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    No reason at all thousands of people do this in local class all over the uk . The difference is these are all local classes with a small number of boats each. The Laser/ILCA is probably the only boat with world wide coverage. So let’s look at other world wide sports , do golfer play with hickory...

    Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    I am not disagreeing with the reasons why you decided to join the Aero class. What I am saying is if the Laser class had developed at a steady and regular rate in the 80s/90s and 00s there would not have been a Aero class for you to join .

    Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    Also totally true which is why I hopped the class would make a mess of it . Unfortunately, for me that wish the class would just die , the class committee did a terrific job steering the class though the LP mess and the class is now stronger than it’s been in decades. πŸ˜€

    Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    Totally disagree . Both the Aero and the Zero are just slightly better Lasers with slightly less vices , nothing more. In fact if the laser had sorted out it’s mainsheet ( at a small cost) and adopted, as a option, the Australian carbon fibre larger rigs ( at a large cost ) that were trialled a...

    Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    Utter tosh . Totally agree the laser was a game changer when it was launched.BUT IN 2022 what the laser needs now is more up dating not less . IF this had happened in the last 10 years, you would not be sailing an Aero and I would not be sailing a Zero . Those β€˜ quirks’ need to be got rid of...

    SOL Sailing???

    I totally understand and I also understand it’s not going to change, but it why the USA has so many old classes . If you have a good handicap scene it allows a class to grow organically at different locations with out the need for half a dozen people to buy in to a new class at a club . Tbh...

    You don’t have to be a woke lefty to find the term objectionable. You only need to be the grandchild of one of the first allied soldiers that entered Belsen . πŸ˜•

    SOL Sailing???

    Even I totally get this . For anyone that just want wants a fun boat on the beach it’s a great idea. But why decide to race . It’s like deciding to go cycling racing but deciding to using sit up and beg , 3 speed shopping bikes. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    where in the world

    I totally understand this argument I just don’t agree with it as you well know πŸ˜€. If I was in that position it would just mean I had more money to spend on other hobbies. Luckily ( on this point anyway πŸ˜‚) I live in England and don’t have to make that difficult choice. πŸ˜€

    Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    It depends. If you are like most usa sailors and think the only real sailing is class sailing , the answer is NO. Just have a ILCA. If you are like the majority of uk sailors that are happy py sailing week in week out, the answer is still NO. Just sail what you want . πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
