Just found this on the Laser 2000 forum:

I always use masthead buoyancy when sailing alone. Have tried and failed at righting from an inversion, we’re talking 14st jumping up and down on the gunwale and not budging it! On that occasion there was another 14st lump on hand to help out, but because it can fully invert in under half a minute there are no guarantees you could get onto the centreboard in time, ‘specially if you’re using the gennaker.

Hopefully Mr Morrison will have done a better job on the Wayfarer…
