The website does change, not so long ago it was inferred that they had passed 'equipment committee' stage and were waiting on 'World sailing' to adjudicate, it comes across differently now.
Seems very rude to accuse TLC and members of setting up to keep LPE in business.

Having (finally!) been called out, his rearguard action that is TheLaserClass should be strangled at birth, as far as I am concerned.

Professional football clubs have 'fit and proper person' tests for club owners. Happily, sailing is mostly not in that world, but if it was, would Rastegar pass?

I doubt LPE (or whatever the current company is called) will be more than inconvenienced by the loss of 'official' ILCA recognition, they build several other popular classes including the Sunfish and Pico which will keep them going just fine...

But as the original idea for TLC and the money to set up TLC came from the holding companies behind LPE , itís not a difficult conclusion to come to  Wink

Laughable that anyone considers the TLC a legitimate organisation when they have stolen copy writed documents from ILCA

  Rugby League and Rugby Union model ?   Both could prosper and even benefit from the others existence with a bit of imagination rather than instinctive rancour.  Not sure the 'strategists (!)' on either side want to do much more than 'win' though... even if that means precipitating, accelerating and presiding over a short or longer term decline.   At some point Olympic 'status' could easily disappear either because sailing is 'out' of the circus or because if it survives it wants something 'different', 'better or whatever.   

Not sure anyone in their right minds would want any member of such a dysfunctional  family living next door ! .... or recommend their  products or companies to others.  Apparently too obsessed with their own issues to deal with the real world outside of their own self-built  bubble....  Too much weeping from all involved about their largely self-inflicted wounds .. and why they are  completely, absolutely and always were  in the Ďrightí.  Do just  try and 'move on' there .... Confused

I'm not sure which document you are referring to but I'm guessing you mean the 'Laser Class Rules' which, 'cos the Laser/ILCA is an international class, are presumably, the property of World Sailing?
WRT LPE's right's to the boat formerly known as "the Weekender" either ILCA or World Sailing own the exclusive worldwide rights to the 'construction manual' or a licence to same, in which case they could prevent LPE from building 'Lasers', or LPE have a legitimate right to build lasers and, thus, a legitimate right to use the 'construction manual'. Since ILCA or WS have not sent a 'cease and desist' letter to LPE it's probably safe to assume that LPE have a legitimate right to build Lasers.

Err the owner of LPE has been threatening the ILCA with setting up its own class association since it was deselected as a builder because of not allowing factory visits, as confirmed by members of the ILCA committee in various places . The evidence is out there,  you just have to look further than asking the 10 people that post on here.
If you want some hearsay evidence, when I was talking the the guys on the LPE stand at the dinghy show this year, when I asked why their boats didnít have the proper WS/ILCA plaques, they said not to worry as they were going to set up their own class later in the year  LOL
