3 lasersThe Club has an enthusiastic sub group of members who sail RC Lasers, a quarter size model of the Olympic class Laser dinghy.  Like the dinghy it is a strictly controlled one-design class.

While the group sails to the ISAF racing rules of sailing, we do honour the club code of being friendly first and competitive second.

Each year an RC Laser Series of ten rounds is held at the club, usually from February to November. This series helps prepare sailors for State and National title events, which the Club stands ready to host.

The RC Laser offers club members who usually sail ML45's or other classes, the opportunity to compete in a slightly more serious way if they wish.

The Club has a fleet of over 20 RC Lasers and there is usually a group of 6 - 10 sailors at the club each Wednesday. Formal racing is generally held on one Sunday afternoon of each month as part of the RC Laser Series, and there is also a program of 4-5 handicap races held throughout the year, where upto 20 boats appear. RC Lasers also sail on the combined classes sailing days, which are held on the first barbecue Saturday of each month. Look out for a winter series at the Port River Sailing Club and events at Hart's Mill at Port Adelaide.
