Laser 2000

2 man sitting out dinghy. The Laser 2000 is a great family boat, designed to be sailed with a variety of crew ability. The Laser 2000 gives superb performance whilst staying manageable for less experienced sailors, its popularity has grown tremendously over the last few years, sailing schools and clubs like the boat for its simplicity and “easy to sail” design. It has an asymmetric kite which provides excitement downwind. There are a good number of 2000s at the club and the fleet is getting keener. Contact: Simon Morley
