About the project

The Victorian Laser Assocaition (VLA) a non for profit organisation has been awarded the rights to host the Men’s Laser World Championships, the Women’s Laser World Championships, the Men’s Radial World Championships, the Laser Master’s World Championships, the Oceania Laser Championships, the Australian Laser National Championship and Australian Laser Master’s Championship in 2020.

This is a fantastic opportunity for Australian sailors to compete with the best in world in the lead up to the 2020 Olympics in Japan, and to sail in a World Championships, an experience than many sailors never get to enjoy.

The VLA hopes to raise funds and seeks your support to:

·        Make the events world class, and memorable for all the sailors and spectators.

·        Promote Australia as the destination for sailing in the summer of 2020 in the lead up to the 2020 Olympics.

·        Promote the events to International Competitors to increase participation.

·        Generate a surplus to enable the VLA to increase participation in sailing, provide coaching to all Laser sailors and encourage others to experience the sport of sailing and the camaraderie that develops in a sport enjoyed by participants of all ages.

The Events will be hosted by Sandringham Yacht Club and Royal Geelong Yacht Club and will be run predominantly by large team of volunteers with assistance provided where necessary with event support.

Your contribution will help the VLA promote, conduct and make these events enjoyable and memorable for all the participants (sailors, supporters and volunteers) and generate a legacy that can be used to increase participation in sailing a sport enjoyed by all ages.
