ABC Laser 2000 Courses

We particularly recommend our regular three-day Laser 2000 Courses, which are an ideal next step after a beginners course, or perfect for those who may not have sailed a dinghy for some time and want a quick refresher. Laser 2000s play a key role in our adult dinghy training and sailing, and here at ABC we think these boats are versatile and rewarding, accessible to those with limited sailing experience but still challenging and exciting when sailed at a higher level.
Applicants should hold HKSF Level 2 / equivalent qualification
