Laser Vortex Sailing Dinghy

Laser Vortex sailing dinghy The Vortex is neither catamaran nor monohull. Equally at home as a performance racer or a holiday resort fun-boat, Laser's latest offering simply defies description in any normal category.

The Vortex was designed by Jo Richards, and is intended as a fun boat providing high-performance sailing without the acrobatic skills and athleticism required for some of the more advanced designs. The Vortex will be equally at home as a beach-resort boat, high speed blasting around the bay and lately, as a circuit starts to develop, serious racing.

The wetted surface area is minimal so it flies through the water quickly and quietly. With one hull out of the water almost the entire weight of the boat and pilot are acting as righting moment making it incredibly stable. When things go wrong in a vortex more often than not you get away without a capsize.


Length : 4.2m

Laser Vortex  Dinghy comments and advice



The Laser Vortex now comes with an optional asymmetric spinnaker which makes for even more fun on the down wind legs. The Active class association runs several open meetings throughout the year.


Although the comments about stability are true for light winds it's a very different story once the wind gets up. If you are looking at buying one of these boats, you need to be comfortable helming from the trapeze (and prepared to get wet lots trying to figure out how to do this!) A boat for more experienced sailors in my opinion.
