If the boat accidentally tilts, it can empty itself, which contributes to a safe and enjoyable sailing experience.

The Laser Bug not only invites fun on the water, but also offers a nice challenge for the slightly more experienced sailor. It is an opportunity for children to develop important life skills such as independence, responsibility and self-confidence. It's not just sailing; it's a journey of discovery where your children have fun and grow.

Step aboard the Laser Bug and let your children enjoy a very fun sailing holiday. It is the perfect way to develop a love of sailing while acquiring important skills for the future. 🌊⛵
