Laser 4.7 Rig – The Laser Progression

If you aren’t familiar with the Laser, it is a great boat for Juniors all the way up to Octogenarians. There are three sail sizes…4.7, Radial, and Full. All that is required to change between them is the sail, and a different length lower mast. In most major regattas, if you register for the full, but the wind is such that you’d rather sail the slightly smaller Radial, there is no penalty for doing so. Check out how comfortable this junior sailor is on his 4.7 (okay…yeah…it’s my kid!)
