Laser 2

The Laser 2 was designed in 1980 as the natural evolution from the original Laser into two handed sailing. Since then Laser have evolved their class and offer a large range of dinghies from which to choose. However, the Laser 2 remains a popular boat and there are plenty still racing competitively.

The Laser 2 is good value for money and is popular with the student sailing fraternity. This one design dinghy has a trapeze and spinnaker, which is easily operated. The spinnaker is raised and lowered from an integral chute - easy to operate. She is definitely on the wet side, not the fastest option on the market, but excellent fun in a blow.

Easy to handle out of the water and easy to rig and sail.
