SailLaser, a training facility and LaserPerformance product dealer, is opening its fifth North American location in St. Petersburg, Fla., next to the Harborage Marina, in mid-January.

Worldwide, there are 12 SailLaser centers. The locations have served thousands of new sailors, holding basic sailing classes, hosting summer sailing camp programs and conducting advanced racing clinics.

The St. Petersburg center will replicate many of the popular programs proven at other centers. They include sailing camps, sailing lessons, community sailing programs, racing clinics, corporate programs and special events.

A range of LaserPerformance products, including Lasers, Picos, Bahias and LaserPerformance's newest product, the Bug, also will be available at the center.  Additionally, SailLaser St. Petersburg will feature a complete line of dinghy clothing and accessories.

"SailLaser St. Petersburg's opening will provide a tremendous benefit to the local community," category manager David Himmel said in a statement. "Our whole mission is predicated on providing a great on-the-water experience. We want to do our part to shift the paradigm away from sailing being a sport that is too complicated or expensive to participate in."
