The Laser is a one design, single handed sailing dinghy. There are 3 rig set-ups for the Laser hull and the 4.7 is the smallest of the three, with 4.7 square meters of sail area.
The Laser is the largest international dinghy class, making the Laser 4.7 an ideal youth class for sailors looking to develop their racing skills.
The Laser 4.7 is an ideal next step after the Optimist for sailors wanting to develop single-handed skills. These skills can be later transferred into double-handed boats, or sailors can progress into the Laser Radial and pursue Laser class sailing.
