The Laser was created as a strict one-design dinghy where the true test, when raced, is between sailors and not boats and equipment.
The fundamental principle of the Laser rules is that you cannot change anything unless specifically permitted by the rules to do so. Such permissions are restricted and generally only allow a limited choice to accommodate different physical attributes of sailors.
The strength and absence of any flexibility in The Fundamental Rule of the Laser class has enabled the class to grow at a rate unsurpassed by any other dinghy.
The Class Association has absolute control over all aspects of the class rules. Further protection is achieved by the requirement that the International Sailing Federation has to approve any changes. By exercising control worldwide, the Laser has been maintained as one of the most pure one design in the sailing world.
