The Laser is Britain’s most popular single handed sailing class and the Laser World Championships are coming to the UK for the first time in 2010.

The Royal Yachting Association (RYA) has confirmed that Largs Sailing Club in Ayrshire, sportscotland’s championship sailing venue and home of the Scottish Sailing Institute, will welcome two out of four sailing regattas comprising the Laser World Championships: the Laser Radial Women’s World Championships from 7 - 14 July 2010 and the Laser Radial Men’s and Youth Worlds from 18 - 25 July 2010.

Hosting the event will attract more than 500 sailors to Ayrshire on the west coast of Scotland, including competitors from more than 30 countries, many with their sights set firmly on representing their country at the 2012 Olympic Games.

In addition to the two regattas which will come to Scotland, the further two regattas which make up the 2010 Worlds, the Laser (standard) Senior and Junior World Championships from 27 August - 5 September 2010 and the Laser Masters Worlds from 11 - 19 September 2010, will be staged at Hayling Island Sailing Club in Hampshire.
