What we're about

Welcome to the beautiful sports of Laser Sailing and Windsurfing! Laser sailing and windsurfing is wet, its wild, it's physical and challenging! There is nothing more satisfying than flying across the water using the power of the wind. Many Laser sailors also cross over into windsurfing and vice versa which is why there are two sub sections within this meetup group:

1) Laser Sailing/Racing every Monday night at the Lake Forest Boat Ramp in Tahoe City from May 25 to August 31. This group of sailors has actually been racing Lasers every Monday night SINCE 1976! Most of the regulars are not actually part of this Meetup group yet. The racing is held and organized by the Tahoe Yacht Club and so you must sign a waiver and pay a drop in fee of $25 to cover the costs of running the races. You don't have to race or pay if you want to just sail around in your Laser. After the races we all go out to dinner to a sponsoring restaurant. A big THANK YOU goes out to Jake's, Sunnyside, Hacienda and Garwoods. See more detailed information about Laser Racing within this meetup group.

2) Windsurfing at Donner Lake every Tuesday evening at the midway point on Donner Pass Road, June 16 through August 25. For avid windsurfers who want to take it to the next level, the group will be heading to the Delta on weekends. Free camping at "The Sign", big breeze, warm water, and warm people! Meet other windsurfers, get tips on how to start windsurfing or get better. Learn how to set up your sail, water start, use a harness. You get the idea (I hope). Bring a big board and your biggest sail. Meet other windsurfers who have gear that they are no longer using and swap.
