Great idea; hope it works!All Excellent points, thank you for the feedback. At my club, which is not high end by any stretch, there are quite a few club owned optis which are not in racing shape whatsoever, and therefore have no real appeal for the kids beyond just junior sailing lessons, meaning going to regional regattas with these boats is not an option. At the same time, privately owned Lasers are ubiquitous. I thought the most cost effective way to get 5-10 of these 120 lb 12 year olds on the water would be to get their parents to spend the $250 it costs to buy intensity 4.7 rigs and sail the old lasers they already own, rather than trying to convince all their parents to shell out $1500 plus for an even mildly competitive Opti. I could be wrong.
