The trustees achieve this by undertaking fundraising activities and making appropriate grants.'

We support providers of sailing opportunities (financially and practically) and where sailing facilities are less developed, we support the creation of those facilities in a sustainable way'.

Last AGM of the current UK Laser 2 Class Association

The minutes of the last AGM of the current UK Laser 2 Class Association are attached.

Perhaps, one day, 'we will be back' but until then the website, including the forum, should continue for at least 8 years, acting as a useful resource for anyone, anywhere, with a Laser 2.
