It’s not the first time the RC Laser has been included in the Geelong Festival of Sails program. Back in 2004, we were invited to demonstrate the boat and ran a series of social races. It was a tremendous event to be part of and for 2018 we would love it if you could join us.
RC Laser sailors are invited to bring your boats and sail a series of social races and demonstrate your sailing skills! Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
