~Active gennaker racing series for all.
Celebrating more than a decade, the Laser 2000 has proved itself as both a club racer and family cruiser. It is a lovely and forgiving boat that provides exhilarating gennaker sailing for both novice and advanced sailors.
Its easy to reef mainsail, furling jib and storage boxes make it an ideal family cruising boat, while the easy to hoist and drop gennaker, and easy to adjust vang and cunningham make it great for racing. This boat truly provides the best of both worlds.
