At South Cerney we have a very sociable Laser fleet with about forty-odd boats in the dinghy park, all conveniently parked together. The Laser is a relatively old design but its enduring success makes it the most well -established class in the world and the only Olympic fleet at the club. Wherever you go you will find a competitive Laser fleet and there are always lots of boats on the second hand market at prices to suit all budgets. The Laser is strict one-design, but has the advantage of having 3 different rig sizes. You don't need to spend a fortune to get a competitive boat and we are here to help provide guidance and advice for any fleet or potential fleet member. If you'd like to try before you buy then we have a fleet of club Lasers which can be hired, or ask to borrow a boat for a test sail.
At South Cerney we try to hold regular training days for the Lasers and we aim these at all abilities. They vary from the basic rigging of your boat, race starts, tacking & gybing right up to advanced racing techniques. Our aim is to provide social racing that all levels can participate and enjoy sailing against other Lasers. Of course the laser is a great boat to have a blast about when windy and we fully encourage the fleet members to attend local Open meetings and further afield if they wish.
Please take a look at the other Fleet pages for further information.
