Laser Standard (4 sailboats)
Laser sailboat was created in 1969 by Canadian yachtsman and yacht designer Bruce Kirby. His main goal was to create a light and comfortable sailboat that can be carried by car. As a result, a lightweight, inexpensive and highly dynamic sailboat was invented. For its time, the design of the laser class yacht was considered a revolutionary invention.
The hull of a Lasers is highly airtight. The weight is 60 kilograms. When capsizing in water, a sailboat of this type is very easy to restore to its original position.
The sailboat is armed with one sail and designed for one person. Due to its simple design, it only takes a few minutes to prepare the yacht for the competition.
Lasers have been used in competitions since 1974.
The length of Laser sailboats is 4.23 meters, width - 1.37 meters, draught - 0.79 meters, and deadweight - 59 kilograms.
There are no age restrictions for the use of Lasers.
Laser Radial (2 sailboats; Olympic class)
In 2008, as a result of the modification of the Laser, new Laser Radial sailboats appeared. The new sailboats differ from standard Laser yachts in sail size and the ability to take more weight. Laser Radials are intended for more experienced yachtsmen.
Laser Pico (2 sailboats)
This type of sailboats is designed for beginners in sailing. In addition to participating in competitions, Laser-Pico is used for sea trips.
