The singlehanded International Laser® is one of the most popular boats
in sailing history, with over 190,000 hulls worldwide. This physically
demanding dinghy follows strict one-design regulations and tests a sailor's
and finesse as much as it tests tactical skill. The boat and equipment
have changed little since Bruce Kirby's original 1971 design. The powerful
vang, 10:1 cunningham, and low-friction clew sleeve make frequent fine-tune
adjustments a breeze and have opened the class to a wider range of sailors.
The divided cascading system runs the powerful fine-tune lead aft, allowing
the helmsman to easily optimize sail shape on a light air beat. The gross-trim
runs forward to the trimmer for fast mark roundings. To use this efficient
system, simply add a 144 swivel base and third-party mainsheet adapter plate
to your existing hardware.
Unit 1 Furler
MKIV's are easy to adjust for reefing and furling. When racing in non-class
events, J/105 sailors can take the spool off and use the double-groove foil
for fast sail changes.
