Laser's are great boats to both learn on and race on. If you know how to sail a laser well, you can sail any boat out there. The cool thing about a Laser is that is a boat that a kid (adult) can learn on and that a person that really knows how to sail (weight distribution, tiller feather, sail tweaking, etc.) can really finesse around a course. Also, as others have mentioned, it can pretty much go in any wind condition from 1 kt to 30 kts.

You can trailer it and pretty much launch it yourself. You can sail it alone or with another person.

If you liked my advice/response, give me some rep points. If you didn't......well what do you expect, it was free.
