Laser Performance World Open (June 26-27) at Sail Newport
Sign up now for what looks to be a very fun event! The entries are just now coming in and a current entry list will be posted soon.
There will be a racing circle consisting of Lasers, Laser Radials and Sunfish. There is a mathematical matrix based on the size of your fleet and how you do in your fleet to determine a World Open Winner; so in essence, first place could be a Laser from the US, second could be a SB3 from UK and 3rd could be a Sunfish from the US, or something like that.
There will be a “Fun Circle” with Bugs and Picos for the young kids where people have the option of sailing just Saturday, just Sunday, or both. The racing for the fun circle will not be the traditional round the buoys racing, but have more of a fun aspect to it where there will be 3 or 4 events per day that the little kids can get scored on.
Laser Performance is planning a big dinner party at Sail Newport on the Saturday night of the regatta complete with DJ and dancing and a cookout for the Sunday Awards. The plan is for a family style event along with great competitive racing for the Lasers and Sunfish. There will be great racing on the water as well as off the water activities for family members in Historic Newport.
