RS 500

  • Design year


The 14ft-6in boat allows the move up to a new design with trapeze and asymmetric spinnaker in the classic RS one-package deal. Slightly smaller than the RS400 and narrower, but with the power of the trapeze and the asymmetric to add the fun factor. Not directly targeting any existing class but providing something just that bit different. Martin thinks the existing traditional spinnaker types will stay with their established class, while the youngster trading up or the uncommitted will be looking for a modern take on the middle sized boat.
