As the blurb says :
- A modern crisp GRP dinghy with sparkling performance and ease of use that fits the whole family.
- A perfect trainer or for racing.
- Double handed for racing up to 4 for training
- A highly successful Class, the 2000 (formerly the Laser 2000) is the biggest fleet at WWSC with a full open circuit series plus championships, supported by an enthusiastic and very friendly Class Association
With many features found in modern performance classes, such as a gennaker and a self draining cockpit, the 2000 combines exciting sailing with easy handling that inspires confidence. The 2000 is also well established as a great training boat within many leading organisations including the Army over at Thorney Island.
The perfect transition from training into more advanced techniques and racing. The boats reward adjustment to the rig controls in different conditions. It is particularly suited to Chichester Harbour.
RS Sailing became the licensed manufacturer in 2013 and many detailed improvements to the 2000 including new moulds and tooling have helped a new era of Class growth. However, the 'old' Laser models are still competitive.
For more information or to have a go in a 2000 please contact the class captain.
