2018 Indy Spring Laser/Snipe Windy 500 Regatta: May 19, 20
An Olympic class boat, the Laser is sailed and raced throughout the world. The International Laser Class Association maintains very strict one-design rules, which enable the older well-maintained boats to remain competitive with newer boats. Laser Fleet #24 is part of ILCA District 18.

Come race your Laser Wednesday night from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. We hold short informal races for fun and to practice. The emphasis is not on keeping score - we don't - but to have fun and to improve for the next race. Sunfish and Snipes are welcome.

Laser Fleet #24 hosts a Spring Regatta each year that typically attracts sailors from all over Indiana and each of the surrounding surrounding states. The last two years, we've had 25 boats on the line, and in 2006 we had a bonanza, with 64 sailors!

The ISC has several Lasers that qualified members are free to use for fun and racing.  Associate memberships (non-boat owning), and single-handed memberships are available at reduced rates.

The Laser is a good choice for juniors, as with it's three interchangeable rigs, the 4.7(m2), Radial (5.76 m2) and Standard (7.06 m2), the sail area can grow with the sailor, needing only new lower mast sections and sails. The Radial is the women's Olympic single handed class, and many lighter men sail Radials as their first choice, or swap into them when the breeze picks up.
