Laser Line Drawing

Lasers - The Laser is one of the most popular single-handed dinghies in the world. As of 2011, there are more than 200,000 boats worldwide. The boat is high-performance and relatively low cost. The Laser also provides very competitive racing for ALL AGES due to the very tight class association controls which eliminate differences in hull, sails and equipment.  The Dallas Laser Fleet sails out of CSC with racing on Wednesday nights during the summer.  There is also informal racing on Saturday mornings year-around.

Snipe Line Drawing Snipe - The very first chartered Snipe Fleet (# 1) originated at White Rock Lake in 1934 and now calls CSC home. The Snipe is a 15-1/2 ft. sloop weighing 381 pounds with serious "go-fast" controls which have attracted racing sailors world-wide. Very tight one-design class rules and superior construction requirements mean these boats remain very competitive for years. The Snipes race Saturdays, year around.
