|My Moth circa 1969|
Having never raced a Laser I set about learning how to sail the boat using articles and instructional videos found on line. I joined a great Laser club and had some excellent on the water coaching along the way.
Over the last 5 years sailed a Laser two to three times a week averaging 110 sails a year, roughly 1,500 hours on the water. I have owned three Lasers, upgrading each time and achieved my 100 races.
In late 2016 I bought a brand new RS Aero 7. It is a wonderful boat and a joy to sail.

Here in Sydney Australia we have two choices.
- the 30kg modern design RS Aero, the Laser replacement, and
- the ultra light and fast foiling Waszp.
