Laser Radial: Sailing Simplicity
If you’re looking for the essence of sail racing, then the Laser Radial class is for you. With a lone sailor, a main sail and a tiller to control the rudder, the Laser Radial class sees pure, close racing with an emphasis on reading the wind, the water currents and waves paired with strength and finesse in boat handling.
Like their counterparts in the other high performance sailing classes, Laser Radial sailors are true athletes, spending hours in the gym to build the endurance and strength needed to best their opponents in long races and weeklong competitions. With such a simple boat, factors of strength and conditioning as well as racing tactics and boat handling become that much more important to finish at the top.
