Picture of A Quick Laser Cut Sailing Trophy
A quick to make yet impressive looking laser cut Acrylic trophy I made for a scout event, but change the text/logo and it will work for any sailing related event. Instructable by James.

Step 1: Materials and Equipment

You will need
  • Cardboard for test cuts
  • Corel Draw or Other vector graphics editor
  • 3/8" Thick Clear Acrylic 12"x9" Sheet
  • Perspex cement
  • and about 30 minutes
You will also need access to a Laser cutter which is why I made it at TechShop San Jose on one of their Epilog 60 watt machines. On a smaller machine you may need to do 3 or 4 passes to cut the 3/8" acrylic.
 
Times have changed, when I was in scouts all we got was a cheap ribbon for participating in the regatta races.
That is cool that you have adult leadership to expose you to laser cutters and stuff.
