Dear Laser Sailors,

Since our last Newsletter on the 9th November you might have noticed that our class website, was suddenly and inexplicably taken down by our host provider. This action was in response to tenuous legal action taken against The Laser Class by ILCA, an unnecessary antagonism leveled against The Laser Class, for the second time within a few months. It has, however, not changed our resolve to continue to be your representative body – the class that represents all sailors sailing the original One-Design Laser. In response to this spurious behavior, the Executive Committee felt it is necessary to respond with this short statement to its membership. A more focused response from LaserPerformance to these actions by ILCA will no doubt be imminent.

The Laser Class was set-up not to polarize the Laser sailing community, but to protect the interests of the original Laser sailor worldwide. The Laser Class has no interest in pursuing a confrontational course with ILCA. This same principal applies to the sports institutions and governing bodies. On the contrary, The Laser Class would welcome open and objective discussions on a fair and level playing field. In accordance with our own open and transparent policy as an association, The Laser Class Executive Council is, for example, refining both the class rules and the new constitutional documents, as discussed in the AGM, for the coming sailing season. Both documents will be updated on the website in due course.

The Laser Class Executive Committee will continue to concentrate their time and energy in preparing some exciting new events for 2021, expanding our global representation, and ensuring that the Laser One-Design ethos is upheld. Stay with us for the journey and animate your fellow Laser sailors to join us!

Best wishes and stay healthy!
