My club regularly (i.e. every week) gets 25 Lasers racing during the Wednesday evening series (May -Sept), with over 50 doing at least one race in the series. Can any other club boast such high numbers racing regularly in one class?

Is that all full rigs?

If not then it is 3 separate classes as they all have different handicaps.

At Lancing we have fleets of 10 to 15 full rigs plus a couple of Radials and a couple of 4.7s. Not bad for a club that only has about 110 boats in its compund of which about 50 are Lasers.

Yes, all full rigs.  Not sure how many boats/Lasers we have in total, but its quite a few (membership of 550).

I'm sure several clubs frequently have similar numbers of oppies out but do they really count??
