Sometimes in all the discussion on this blog about disputes among Laser builders, and class rules, and Racing Rules, and tactics, and strategy, and boat-handling tricks, and fitness etc. etc. it's easy to forget what sailing is really all about.
This picture (which I stole from the Facebook page of a friend of a friend of a friend or something) reminds me.
My first Laser had a sail just like that.
I never had a yellow Laser but I did have an orange one.
I used to take my sons and random kids we met on holiday for rides just like that.
Though I never took a dog on a Laser.
