Sailing Certification - Laser Sailing

Sailors with Level 1 Sailing Certification and Laser Sailing Certification are entitled to use Club owned Lasers in light winds or a "gentle breeze" (up to about 12 mph with no whitecaps). Sailing in higher wind conditions requires additional Certification or supervision of a LSC sailing instructor. For Junior Sailors, adult assistance in rigging the boat is appropriate where additional strength is required as long as the Junior Sailor is giving specific direction to the adult as an indication the Junior Sailor could complete the task except for lacking necessary strength.

Load a Club Laser onto a Club Dolly. Pull the sailboat to the launch area using the dolly and position the sailboat so that the bow is pointed into the wind.
Using Club Laser sails, rudder, centerboard and control lines/blocks from the Sail Shed, rig the boat - including tying the centerboard to the boat; rigging the vang, outhaul, clew tiedown, cunningham, traveler and mainsheet.
Demonstrate how to reef the sail by turning it once or twice around the mast. Note: after reefing the sail, the cunningham is not usable and the outhaul may need to be rigged differently than when the sail is not reefed.
Launch the boat using the dolly. Tie the boat to a mark while putting the dolly away and get the rudder down.
Untie the boat from the mark, properly position it to sail safely away from the launch area, put the centerboard in, climb on board and sail away from the launch area.
Return to the launch area, bring the boat to a safe stop by turning the bow into the wind and tie the boat to a mark.
While tied to a mark, detach the mainsheet, remove the rudder and centerboard and put them in the cockpit, load the boat onto a dolly and use the dolly to bring the boat back on land.
De-rig the boat - then put everything away where it belongs.
