The RC Laser is a well established one design boat, modelled on its big sister the Laser dinghy, sailed at various Clubs through out the UK and the World wide, There is a National Laser association which organises TT (open meetings) at various clubs through out the UK ,and a National Championship held yearly. Its ready to sail out of the box, with strict class rules, only allowing sails and spares from the class manufacturer to be used, and sailing under normal sailing racing rules,there are 4 sails A, B, C, and D, used for different wind strengths, There are only 2 controls on the transmitter that a helms needs to master, the main sheet and rudder making it, a great level entry boat, for new comers and established sailors to sail in close fleet racing.
At Poole Radio Yacht Club, we have a established fleet, we race the Lasers on Wednesday morning and Saturday morning start time 10.30 with 8 races on each morning, 4 races then we stop for coffee and a further 4 races after coffee.
The fleet has seen a number of new members join and is getting a good turn out of boats,
We enjoy some close racing in our friendly fleet, if your looking to get into RC boat racing why not come down and see the fun, you can have a chat over a coffee, you can purchase a second hand boat for as little as £300 getting you on the water.
