Exciting Attainable Fast Sailing with Super Easy Handling

2000
Modern crisp GRP looks with sparkling performance and ease of use that fits the whole family. A perfect trainer, program class or introduction to racing.
Doublehanded for racing – up to 4 for training

A highly successful Class, the 2000 (formerly the Laser 2000) has active club racing fleets and a full open circuit series plus championships, supported by an enthusiastic Class Association.

With many features found in modern performance classes, such as a gennaker and a self draining cockpit, the 2000 (formerly the Laser 2000) combines exciting sailing and with easy handling that inspires confidence.

The 2000 is also well established as great a training boat within many leading organisations including the British Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force sailing programmes. The perfect transition from training into more advanced techniques and racing.

RS Sailing became the licensed manufacturer in 2013 and many detailed improvements to the 2000 (see Features page) including new moulds and tooling to help set the stage for a new era of Class growth.
