What do the Pro's use? - Laser

In a few short years since launching Boatropes.com.au we have been fortunate enough to work with club racers through to sailors representing Australia at the highest levels.

When it comes to boat set up we’ve seen the good, the bad and the ugly and overtime, based on experience we have evolved our Laser systems to the standard where they are trusted by the best.

At Boatropes.com.au we believe that reliable & efficient systems are a must. Having your boat set up well can help with:

  • Adjusting your Vang, Cunningham or Outhaul correctly.

  • Having repeatable settings.

  • Allow you to get your head out of the boat.

  • Making sailing your laser more enjoyable!

So what are the best systems?


Suitable for 4.7, Radial, Standard & MKII


Our 10:1 Cunningham is perfect with sailors transitioning to 4.7’s or from 4.7’s to radial due to the increased purchase available.

For larger sailors from the Radial - MKII with a bit more strength the 8:1 System is a great upgrade on the classic 6:1



We are always looking for ways to improve our systems, if you have any ideas or have a custom system you’d like our help to build be sure to contact us.

Asymetric Training & Sprint Regatta (1).png

Hunters Hill Sailing Club and the NSW 9er Association, supported by BoatCrewGear.com and BoatRopes.com.au are delighted to present the 2019 “Asymmetric Training & Sprints”  weekend, on 24/25 August 2019.

Its on again!!! After a fantastic weekend in 2018 where Flying Ants raced 49ers, 16’s, 13’s and 29er’s around the Inner West Harbour, we are lining up again bigger and better in 2019!!!  Will the Cherubs turn up?? Will a Nacra15 or two pop along? Will we see a Musto Skiff (has anyone ever seen a Musto Skiff?)?? Will some RS dinghies come along, or an MG?

This weekend is all about dusting off your fast off the beach asymmetric rigged weapon of choice, and heading out in the late Winter weather to kick off your 2019/20 campaign!!!   And there is a strong rumour the Queensland and Victorian Assy sailors might be coming too ….

Is it serious??  Sort of - we’d love everyone to enjoy the coaching day and learn from some terrific coaches … but we’d also just love seeing fast boats out in the Bay blasting around with folks having an awesome time!!!  And who knows, the people you meet might just be your next crew or skipper some time down the track!!!

What this is not … a grimly serious, overly briefed yawnfest … lets get out and sail!!!! 

We will be having a BBQ after sailing on both days, so please come along and enjoy the fun - and thanks Michael Chittenden for the awesome pics last year!!! http://www.michael-chittenden-photography.com

Do come along and enjoy training and racing on the waters adjacent to Hunters Hill Sailing Club.
