2018 Indy Spring Laser/Snipe Windy 500 Regatta: May 19, 20
NOR, SI, and online registration at http://windy500regatta.com

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.

Laser Fleet #24 hosts a Spring Regatta each year that typically attracts sailors from all over Indiana and each of the surrounding surrounding states. Over the last few years the average turnout has been about 20 boats.

The Indy Laser Fleet owns a Laser equiped with a Standard and Radial rig. If you'd like to sail it, talk to the fleet captain to arrange joining the fleet as an associate member.

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.
