Laser Sailing: The Rules – by The Keepers
We are the Keepers of the Vang. In so being, we also maintain the sacred text wherein lie the simple truths of Laser Sailing etiquette known as The Rules. It is in our trust to maintain and endorse this list.
#1 Obey The Rules.
This isn’t the Pirate’s Code, for Pete’s sake. These aren’t guidelines. These are The Rules.
#2 Lead by example.
Be the one in your fleet saying things like “It’s only blowing 35 knots. Let’s go racing!” and “It will only take us an hour or so to dig the boats out of the snow. Let’s go racing!”
#3 Guide the uninitiated.
Novices should be guided in the ways of Laser sailing. HOW ELSE WILL THEY LEARN IF YOU DON’T
SHOUT AT THEM gently tell them of the error of their ways?
#4 You sail a Laser because you like pain.
The sooner you appreciate this fact, the happier you’ll be.
#5 Harden The Fuck Up.
You should not need telling again.
