The Laser is an Olympic class one design single handed dinghy measuring 4.2m. It can be sailed by men or women of all ages. Depending on weight and ability, the sailor can race in either the 7sqm standard rig or the 5.7sqm radial rig.

A small 4.7 sqm rig is an ideal training dinghy for younger or lighter sailors. Lasers can be purchased new for approximately $8000—$10,000 or second hand from about $2000.
