The Bug is one of the most versatile additions in the LaserPerformance family. Excellent hydrodynamics and outstanding upwind performance push the Bug into the future with ultimate off-the-breeze sailing. The unique hull is a combination of performance and style in a stable platform. Overall, it is a sailboat with superior downwind control.
The Bug comes with your choice of standard 3.8 m² Dacron sail mainsail, which allows for the perfect boat setup for training and learning. The Bug also offers a more advanced sail plan with the Bug Race version for bigger and more advanced young sailors.

Had a couple of Bugs for a couple of years now. One small adult and one child (age 8 when we got them, 11 now). We have both rigs for both boats. The Standard Rig is easy to sail and reef if necessary. The Race Rig is lots of fun, keeps you on your toes and very responsive to sail controls. We race in a handicap fleet and the only downside is the lack of a One Design series or championship in the UK. We've even rowed them from our local lake out onto the river and into town for ice cream! Very happy with these boats.

My daughter has been sailing her bug on her own since she was 7 and LOVES it! It handles well, is incredibly stable and whips the Opti's in her fleets' behinds (which she loves even more!). Just gutted she seems to have the only one in New Zealand!!! Send some more over here Laser! She has no-one to race and she will be devastated when she has to move to an old tub of an opti!
