I wonder who's really behind this, and is thelaserclass.com more than a website designed to sow confusion and generate a view that says ICLA/Laser, what's the difference ?   I'm not usually a conspiracy theorist but I wonder if LPE are behind this as it feels like classic confusion marketing and LPE would gain more than most from it.

LPE are marketing a mk 2 sail and compost top mast so maybe they are not entirely responsible... And Heini has decent credentials.

Sounds ideal!

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?
