RS 200

One of the most successful classes of modern times, the RS200 has developed a huge following and competitive fleets at club, circuit and championship level. 

Responding to finesse rather than physique, the RS200 allows parents, youngsters, couples and friends to share the excitement of asymmetric sailboat racing. 

On the open sea or the smallest of lakes, the success of the RS200 is proof that it has got what it takes.

Hull

  • Spacious and Deep Cockpit for comfortable hiking
  • Toe straps adjustable for both height and reach.
  • Thwart gives the crew a comfortable light wind position.
  • Open transom allows the RS200 to virtually self drain after a capsize and a moulded self bailer quickly removes any remaining water.
  • Immensely strong hull laminate ensures a long competitive life and trouble free sailing.
  • Fittings layout designed for all combinations of strength and experience in the helm and crew. Allows either sailor to perform important functions such as spinnaker hoists and drops plus cunningham and kicker control.
  • Top quality fittings. 

Foils 

  • Pivoting centreboard and rudder make launching and recovery easy.
  • Sophisticated GRP sandwich construction gives strong, light, high performance foils.

Rig

  • Makes the most of modern developments in power control, giving a broad competitive weight range and improved handling in all conditions.
  • Mylar mainsail has ultra-soft full-length battens. These reduce "ragging" to extend the life of the sail, yet still allow the sail to de-power at rest.
  • Dacron jib is easy to "read" in light winds. Sheet loads are very low, so even the lightest of sailors enjoy the ride.
