The 2012 Laser Masters Worlds was sailed from the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron (RQYS) Brisbane, Australia in March and there are two more Laser Class World Championships scheduled for that same venue.

The World Laser Radial Youth Championship 2012 will commence Thursday 28th June and conclude Wednesday 4th July and will be followed by the World Laser Radial Men's Championship 2012 from Wednesday 11th July to Tuesday 17th July.


RQYS General Manager Paul Hughes said today ‘The Laser is the most successful sailing dinghy in history, with some 205,000 boats launched. The Laser has proven immensely popular in the Asia-Pacific with Australians and New Zealanders enjoying a lot of success in the class.

'The Laser Radial, a modified rig version of the original Laser Standard, has also proven immensely popular and to have World titles for these classes is going to be very exciting.

‘Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron is the most active and successful dinghy racing venue in the Asia-Pacific.

‘We ran a very successful Laser Masters World Championship here in March. The Laser Masters sailors were very happy with the convenience of the event location, the course areas, the perfect breeze and the race management.

‘We have spacious green rigging lawns, good safe launching ramps and a large car parking area.

'NS Sail Sports operates its dinghy shop onsite and has a full range of Laser equipment.

'We have excellent cafes and restaurants within the Club, with our latest upgrade to be completed before the Worlds, and a wide range of accommodation options from on site camping, to plenty of 2, 3 and 4 star motels and hotels close by.

'In summary we are ready to rock.

‘We must admit we have been frustrated that the Notice of Race and Online entry is not yet live, even though some European Laser events in August and September are live via ILCA.

'However Jeff Martin, the International Laser Class Association (ILCA) Executive Secretary, has promised that the ILCA will make the Notice of Race, Allocations and Applications for Entry available today.'

ILCA Vice President and Asia Pacific Council chairman, Australian Hugh Leicester said ‘The Class regrets the delay in publication of the NOR but is pleased to confirm it is now ready for release.

'The class also looks forward to running successful championships with RQYS.’
