Laser - New name for Laser Class boat

ILCA has announced that, beginning April 25, all new class-approved boats will be sold and raced under the “ILCA Dinghy” name. This change will have no impact on existing ILCA-authorized boats and equipment, which will be able to race alongside ILCA Dinghies in all class sanctioned events.
Last month, the International Laser Class Association (ILCA) terminated the longtime builder agreement with LaserPerformance (LP) Europe, covering 80% of the market (including North America), for breach of rules in the Laser Construction Manual to ensure identical nature of all Laser boats. ILCA is convinced, the that the remaining builders in Australia and Japan will be able to compensate until a new builder has been selected.
