building a small racing sloop

No James, Lasers can''t be built of wood. There are still classes where you can home build competitive one design race boats out of wood, but they are becoming increasingly rare, and I doubt they exist in the Great Salt Lake. There are some bigger PHFF type boats where cold molded or wood composite boats might be competitive. Actually Thunderbirds are reasonably competitive 26 foot plywood boats aimed at amateur construction.
