LASERS THINK.

   THINK ABOUT SAILING.
Need 10,000 hours to get good.
Need time ashore.  Don't hurry off to sail.  Rig the boat.   Check the lines.  Change them if they are wearing.   Check the tell tails.  Clean the top and bottom.  Bailer working?  Check the blades, tiller and extension.


Need practice time.  Now get out of the water.  Starts. Tacks. Transitions. Mark rounding. Gybes.  360s. 720s.


Get someone to practice with you.


Need to play with the boat.  Turn over.  Walk around the deck.  Sail backwards. Get a kick out of sailing it.


Now you are ready to race.
