The Laser is a one design, single handed, Youth World and Olympic Class sailing dinghy. There are 3 rig set-ups detailed below, which can all be used on the same hull. It is an affordable and competitive class to sail and accommodates sailors of all levels, ages and a weight range of 55kg to 90kg.

The Laser 4.7 has a sail area of 4.7m2. It is a youth and transition class leading up the Laser Radial.
The Laser Radial
 has a sail area of 5.7m2. It is the Youth World and Women’s Olympic class, and raced at club level for sailors that are too light for the standard rig.
The Laser Standard has a sail area of 7m2. This is the original standard rig for the Laser, and is the Men’s Olympic class.

The club has a strong Laser Fleet of which most can be seen competing and training regularly throughout the year. While there is strong competition on the water, there is also great camaraderie on shore.

We have a good mix of experienced and newer sailors of all ages in the Laser fleet. Training is provided throughout the Summer and Winter Seasons during the week and on the weekend.

As the Laser is an international class, there are also multiple regattas at local State, National and International level. Many club members are regular competitors on the Laser circuit.

How to Get Started in the Laser

If you have your own laser but can’t find a 4.7 rig, the Western Australian Laser Association (WALA) provide a sail hire deal where you can hire a 4.7 mast bottom section and sail for a season.

The club has 8 Lasers with all 3 rig sizes for members to lease based on availability. The boats are leased for 3 months to assist in getting started and participating in the club training and racing, or for sailors transitioning from junior classes such as the Optimist. The cost for 3 months is $200. To apply to use a club Laser please email training@sopyc.com.au.
