The Laser is the world’s most popular sailing dinghy and is used from beach holidays to the Men’s & Women’s single handed Olympic class dinghy. It comes with a choice of 3 rigs, standard, Radial (used by lighter sailors) & 4.7 rig (used by juniors).
The Laser has been the largest fleet at Aldenham SC for many years now and there are some 35 boats at the club. In addition the club has 3 Lasers which are available for club members to hire.
Racing is held most Sunday mornings throughout the year and summer Wednesday evenings where a range of abilities ensures that whatever your standard you have a competitive and an enjoyable time. The fleet mostly consists of standard rigs with some swapping to radials rigs on very windy days.
It is a friendly fleet using the “Laser Lawn” adjacent to the club house to rig, launch and catch up on the latest news. Help and advice is readily available to those who want it.
The Club holds an annual Laser Open meeting usually in June which is part of the Thames Valley Circuit. A number of members also travel on the circuit and to other regional open meetings.
