Rooster 8.1 Complete Rig

The Rooster 8.1 is a new rig, designed and manufactured by Rooster Sailing, that is compatible with a standard Laser hull. Together they form a new class of boat called the Rooster 8.1 which currently has a RYA handicap (2011) of 1052.

This rig delivers an amazing performance that would suit anyone over 90Kg.

The Rooster 8.1 sail is constructed with long life and performance in mind. In addition to 4oz Dacron cloth in the main body, the leech is constructed of Mylar, as this is where the highest loads occur. This means that permanent leech stretch is reduced to almost zero. Leech flutter in between battens is eliminated. The Bi-radial construction contributes to increased cloth stability and so making the sail easier to control its power. The large window also helps with visibility when racing. Mainsheet loads are slightly less than the Standard rig, and vang loads are slightly higher. The rig is more like a Jaguar than a Porche, which means you get a steady power delivery upwind. Its downwind performance is amazing once you are past the beam and planing is easy in most conditions. Rudder loads are reduced too

The Rooster 8.1 is compatible with Laser but is not an original Laser Product.  It is a Rooster Sailing Product!

Purchase of a Rooster 8.1 rig includes the sail, battens, mast extender and Free Membership of the Rooster 8.1 Class Association (please supply your email address). Lower Mast sections can be self made if they conform to the Rooster 8.1 class measurement diagram. A racing circuit has been established and the Nationals are usually held at the end of the sailing season, please see the independant web site for further information.

Please note that you will need to fit the extender to a Standard Lower Mast.
