Lasers are great boats. Lots of fun and great exercise. I hope you are a capable swimmer though. If your reflexes are good you wont need to go into the water much.
An advanced Laser trick is to sail it while standing on the windward side holding the tiller in one hand and the main sheet in the other. You can then 'hike' your body out as needed without a harness. This is a little like windsurfing.
Enjoy.
