The ‘Designer Glass Laser Regatta 2023’ took place on Saturday, a very ambitious programme of six races was planned which we actually managed to pull off despite constant course adjustments because of the ever switching breeze.

We also had the pleasure of welcoming a guest starter for the first three races, ‘The Guv’ Sir John Lorimer.

The Standard Rig title was taken by Donald Edwards closely followed by James Bishop, second and Jason Hyett third.

The Radial title was lifted by Simon Pressly with Andrew Dean a close second and Ivan Nicholls who brought some youth to the podium with an excellent third place.

The overall Trophy was retained by Simon Pressly.

Manx Sailing & Cruising Club are hosting their annual Laser Regatta on Saturday 30 September in Ramsey Bay. Many thanks to Huw Bevan of Designer Glass for sponsoring this event.

It will be a one day event with the option of switching to the Sunday if the weather doesn’t play ball. Standard, Radial and 4.7 Classes can compete for the overall honours.

Six short course races, with one discard. If you don’t own a Laser, beg or borrow one (there’s plenty out there). Sailing Instructions can be found at this link – Laser Regatta 2023-Sailing Instructions.

Laxey Sailing Club are holding their Regatta on Sunday 17 September starting at 12.30pm. Sailing Instructions for this event can be found here: LSC Regatta Sailing Instructions 2023
