Don’t try to use these in the State Championship but if you want to blast around on foils on your existing Laser then this may be of interest.

The picture is of MHASC Laser sailor Peter Stephinson who along with Dr Ian Ward designed and are now marketing the Laser foiler kit. The appendage over the stern is nothing to do with flying the Laser but is Peter’s ultimate selfie camera.

You can read all about the development on the Glidefree web site here.
