The Laser dinghy is a popular one-design class of small sailing dinghy. It is a single handed boat, meaning that it is sailed by one person. The design, by Bruce Kirby, emphasizes simplicity and performance.The Laser dinghy became an Olympic-class boat in 1996. Over 175,000 Laser dinghies have been built. Due to its relatively low cost, responsive handling and single-design restrictions, the Laser dinghy is the most widely-owned small sailing dinghy in the world, and the most popular racing class.
