CSULB Sailing Association’s intermediate sailors are encouraged to try their hand at laser sailing. The Laser was designed in 1969 by Bruce Kirby and Ian Bruce on the back of a napkin. The goal was to create a boat that could be transported on the top of a car.
It was originally called the “Weekender” with the sail branded with the letters TGIF.
1996 the Laser became an Olympic class boat and has remained one ever since.
