LaserFest is the most awesomest Laser sailing extravaganza-tastic event IN THE WORLD. It's a celebration of Laser sailing which combines racing, music and beer (lots of it) in a fun series for all levels, run by members of Whitstable Yacht Club, Broadstairs Sailing Club and Herne Bay Sailing Club. Standard, Radial and 4.7 rigs are all eligible. Sailors are welcome to compete in all the races or just one. Competition will be at all levels, from hot-shots to regular club sailors and cadets.
The LaserFest Story
Back in 2017, over a few beers at Whitstable Yacht Club, laser sailors Steve 'Grey Ghost' Gray, Pete 'Pukka' Gowing, Mike 'Cap'n' Oliver and Paul 'pk' Kelly came up with an idea to get more club laser sailors on the water (okay, it was Steve's idea, but we're grabbing some credit). LaserFest was born and that year we had our first LaserFest. Three years later, LaserFest has grown from a small club event to the largest club Laser Sailing race in Britain. Respect.
