RS Elite

5 Seasons

The RS Elite is a joy to sail in all conditions – masses of stability and easily driven to surprisingly high speeds. One-design in all key performance aspects we enjoy some of the best racing on the keelboat scene. Cliff-hanger finishes at major Elite regattas have become a hallmark.

There is a growing number of club fleets and a selection of fabulous RS Elite open events, including class starts at some of the very best regattas. In addition, the boat performs well under IRC, making handicap pot-hunting pretty tempting.

Putting a crew together is easy. The Elite is normally raced with three and light loads mean they can be men or women of virtually any age. Class rules also allow four (to encourage family crews) and two is fine as well – useful for last minute opportunities.

Maintenance is absolutely minimal from both time and cost perspectives, points many keelboat owners will seriously appreciate.
