LASERS STUMBLE




Failure  is a success if we learn from it.

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.

LASERS LOOK BACK AT 2013

This post is without a picture because my picture thing doesn't work.
I had 15 posts in 2013 and 7 of them are worth reading.  I have said about all I can about sailing this little boat ..   Now just saying some of the things a different way.


TAKE A LOOK AT THEM.

Lasers welcome Robert

Robert Scheidt  is back on top at the Laser Worlds.
This is Steve Cockerill going up wind in a radial and showing the  roll back and head up as you go up the front of the wave which will be followed by the roll forward and tiller up to head down the back of the wave.  This is Roberts signature movement as he is going up wind threw the  waves. 
Up the up side and down the down side with body movement to help move the tiller and the boat.
