Dunedin's Laser 50th Birthday Regatta

Dunedin celebrated the 50th Laser birthday on Saturday 11th September.

With Covid and a mixed forecast we were more than pleased when we got 18 boats on the water, exceeding our wildest expectations. Numbers were boosted by a few out of towner from central Otago.
We ran 5 short races in the upper harbour in the centre of town out of Vauxhall Yacht club. We captured the spirt of the laser with all sail sizes present, a mixture of abilities, ages from teens to Grand masters and both genders present. Sailing was in a mixtures of wind strength catching even the best out. This was followed by some food a short talk by Eric Stibbe and a birthday Cake.
To those in Auckland, Stay Safe, to everyone else Happy sailing.
