The Laser is better known as a race boat but is also used by many recreational sailors because it is fast and fun for sailors who are reasonably athletic and skilled. Sailing is simpler than with a boat that also has a jib sail, but the size of the Laser sail requires the weight of a full-size adult to ballast and balance the boat to prevent capsize. A Laser is generally not the best boat to learn the basics of sailing – a Sunfish (see below) is a better choice for beginners and younger sailors. These boats are ridiculously fun. Rent by the day or week, delivery available.
