Laser world champion Nick Thompson coaching session. January 7th-11th, 2017.
Due to requests of many sailors we have changed the dates of World Champion Nick Thompson clinic to January 7th to 11th, 2017.
Nick won the 2015 world championships in closed water conditions that were sometimes choppy, sometimes lake-like and the 2016 worlds in Mexico with short sharp chop on port tack, and loose swell on starboard. Nick just knows how to make the Laser go fast in any conditions and is now ready to share his secrets with you. Don’t be surprised to have Nick do some of the coaching right from his own Laser allowing the rest of us to really understand how fast a world champion can really make this simple boat sail. The 5 day training session will cover all aspects of boat handling, starting, boat speed, fitness and mental preparation.
This clinic is limited to just 10 sailors, which will allow Nick to give personal attention to each sailor. Fees including Laser charter are: $1,790.00 per person. For inscription and more information contact us
Pre-race clinic with Coach Rulo. January 14th-18th, 2017.
In the past three years, Rulo has coached some of the best Laser sailors in the world. This year he will be brining the latest techniques from the pros to this classic clinic. Fleet is limited to just 12 sailors but we still have a few open spots. Fees including Laser and coaching are: $1,229.00 per person. For reservations and more information contact us

What to bring when chartering a Laser with us?
All our fleet is of classic Lasers. No Australian boats, no blue boats from the worlds, or any other kind of hulls that can cause any doubt about your boat speed. If you are fast you are fast, if you are slower we will help you speed up.
Charters include hull, main sheet pulley, deck pulleys, deck cleats, hiking strap, spars, centerboard, rudder and dolly.
To feel right at home on our Lasers, customize it to your likings. This will also allow the coaches to offer changes in your rigging habits when needed.

- tiller and tiller extension
- outhaul setup including bungie
- boom vang assembly
- cunningham setup (including blocks at gooseneck)
