You can let out the main sheet, unloading the sail and quickly reduce the wind force that is trying to tip the boat. At the same time use rudder to turn the nose into the wind.
You lose speed rapidly... but the boat stays upright almost every time.

Racers avoid this method of capsize prevention because it guarantees you will essentially come to a stop. But for pleasure sailing... stopping is better than swimming. (unless you like swimming)

Note in this guy's initial recovery he just about loses it AGAIN because the boat is sideways to the wind.
Try to get the bow pointed into the wind and its easier.

if you feel it tipping , and you know its going to go over, try to climb to the other side as its tipping, you avoid getting wet and its quicker to right though this will take lots of practice and a warm day or two

Lasers weigh nothing, tine mclaughlin is better, 420's are frickin hard to get upright

well, toppers are relatively easy to right, it's with other boats that it can be a problem :)

It's fairly easy to do this stuff on a dinghy. I've capsized a topper a bunch of times. And a feva a few times.

great video... i sail a laser myself and i think the only way to get used to sail it is when you know that nothing is gonna happen and you can just take it easy... it doesn't hurt to capsize so just let it happen one day...

Today I capsized, got my mast stuck in the mud at the bottom, accidently left the jib cleated, there where white caps cause of the wind, dident bring my wet suite or a change of dry clothes...

I was on a 2-man boat when this happened to me. I stayed in the boat and leaned right out while my crewman swam round and righted us. It was terrifying.

Great vid! We joined a local sailing club that has Lasers and you have to show you can recover a capsize. This helped immensely - thanks!
