Fleet Captains: Nikki Downing and Steve Taylor.
This single handed boat, can be sailed by all ages and levels from beginner to world class sailors. It is a great boat to 'grow with' as your sailing develops, as the size of the sail can be changed as your sailing improves. The smallest sail is a 4.7 which is the ideal size for younger sailors advancing from Picos and Toppers. It is also a ‘safer’ sail for those windier days giving more control and fewer capsizes! The n ext size up is the Radial sail, which is often used by lady sailors as well as lighter weight youths. The main size of sail used by Laser sailors around the world is the ‘Full Rig’ (also known as the Standard sail).
Chelmarsh sailors use all 3 sails meaning there is always someone of your own level to sail with. There are club Lasers available with each of the different sized rigs available for hire by members. Sailing takes place throughout the year, and on a variety of days each week. Saturdays are particularly important to ladies, as this is our special ‘Ladies Wot Launch’ event, held on the 2nd Saturday of each month and involves not only sailing, tuition, but a smarter type of lunch!
