Nick and Paul,

I get your drift.

I think the operation of PY for the NotALaser Class has hitherto relied on a 'gentleperson's agreement' not to protest for class non-compliance.

I don't have a problem with this: I think it's commonsensical and shows a nice 'club' spirit.

Just let someone try to race a Rooster tall rig of the Laser PY, and I bet there'll be protests soon enough, and rightly so.

Does anyone know how the new NotALaser Class Association treats 'replica' sails etc? Does the NotALaser Class permit RealLaser Class parts and equipment?

When I was my clubs Laser Fleet Captain (back in the day). we agreed at a Sailing Committee meeting to allow racing with replica sails at club events only.

We created a NotQuiteALaser class and the rules were the same as the class rules of the International Laser with the except that replica sails may be used as long as they were:

a) A direct replacement for the original sail

b) The brand of replica sail was 'approved' by the current Laser fleet captain. 

We had a rudimentary measuring process but most of the replica brands at the time were fine (so Rooster, iSails, Intensity et al)

Every other part of the boat had to comply and for Open events only the genuine item was permitted.

It wasnt perfect but it meant that those without deep pockets could afford a new sail every year rather than every 2nd or 3rd year so stayed as competitive as they could.

Why?  For sure itís a real class, it is the real ILCA class.  But not the only real Laser class. TLC is just as much a real class for a type of boat known as Laser.  Which isnít to say I think it (TLC) has a great future, but it is a legitimate (Laser) class.

You let yourself down by disparagingly calling it NotALaser Class Association.  The boats in this class are actually called Lasers and the sails have the long recognised Laser emblem on them. 

On the other hand the class you refer to as the RealLaser Class does not (in the overwhelming majority of the world) call itself a Laser or have a Laser logo on it.  So which one is the real Laser class?

Sounds ideal!
