Southeast Sailboats is proud to announce it is sponsoring GBR Team Laser sailor Michael Beckett. Michael was voted Podium Potential Sailor of the Year at the 2016 British Sailing Team Annual Awards by his peers. Southeast Sailboats will provide Michael with unique custom made Laser control systems. We wish Michael great success in 2017.
A recent articlefrom International Sailing Academy looked at the challenges faced by the new MKII standard sail and concluded that an 8:1 cunningham was required. Southeast Sailboats has developed a beautifully spliced and easy to rig version of their 8:1 system which is available now and we ship worldwide!
Southeastsailboats were at the UK Laser Nationals last week promoting the CarbonParts Laser compass – not that it needs much promoting – more and more top Laser sailors are using it at national, international level and Olympic level – it must be the most popular Laser compass in Rio!
Two race wins in very shifty conditions at the German Laser Masters Championship meant that I was using the CarbonParts compass a lot. The clear and easy to read tactical scale really helped me in conditions that I have normally struggled with – so two race wins and second place overall was a result!
