I have a Laser dinghy she's no 188042 I've called her Dom, because I bought her with money  I was left when my Aunt died (my Aunt was actually called Doreen but for some reason in the family she was always called Dom) I keep her at Erith Yacht Club, race her when there's an event on and err.. the weather is quite nice. I can do OK when the winds are light (the youngsters get bored and you need to spot the eddies). The Laser is quite a physical boat and in any sort of a breeze, someone who's giving the other competitors 40 or more years and whose first thought on seeing a puff coming is "ooh me back" is at a bit of a disadvantage but whatever, sailing her is fun.
