Newsflash// Laser’s CAN Fly!..

Sailing Anarchy is carrying news on PSA’s Chris Caldecott’s post on his experience with a new foil fitted Laser centreboard and rudder. There is discussion on the subject as well as a brief comment by Chris on his experience with the foiler Laser over the weekend. You can see the postshere.

Chris suggests that he hit 20 knots. This may not be up to the 30 knots which Moths routinely achieve, or the 40 knots of the AC72?s, but fast for less money may be in prospect.

The photo of the unit in action features our very own Peter Stephinson at the helm. Watch out for more news.
