3 lasers sailing

Updated 3 July 2021

 

The 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 Club Championship of eight rounds is held at the club, usually from May to September. 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 5 - 8 members sailing each Wednesday. Wednesday sailing is often at Mawson Lakes but can also be at other venues. Members are notified of the sailing location via a WhatsApp group, so please join the group if you are interested.

Formal racing is generally held on one Sunday afternoon every three weeks or so as part of the RC Laser Club Championship. There is also a program of 4-5 handicap and paired sailing races held throughout the year, where up to 10 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 the twilight series at the Port River Sailing Club over summer and occasional events at venues around the state.
