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??

us sea sailors get about 10 lasers out on weekends but they all change rigs. but generaly they all race with same rig. its a shame cos we have near 1000 members and alot of boats but theres only about 20-30 boats race. and never all at same time. maybe we need a better start line. im from Hill Head btw.

I know it might not sound like allot but we have 6 Albacore that regularly go out and when you sail on a river that isnt the widest at the best of times then it bocomes interesting.

Lymington Town regularly get 20-30 Wayfarers on Wednesday evenings in the Summer - mind you most of them rarely go out apart from Weds. Must be a contender for most weight in a class...

Its all right as long as they stagger launching a bit and don't all hit the water together...

At HISC we get 15 to 20 Solo's out at the w/end, but if you add the ages up, I bet that would beat your Loser fleet...

sorry guys, i should have said. i sail at hawley lake sail training centre (HLSTC) which normally resembles a sludgy brown millpond (i.e manky water no wind).

the actual lake isn't that bad it's just really shallow and theres these random islands so you cant have a lot of boats out on the water trying to start or sailing in a race because it gets really crowded especially when there's a bit of wind

 

why are you barred bns?

Then again, you might want to reconsider, since I'm going to get that Contender in April - you know, the boat you'd like to try out... Wink
