RS100 Features

Hull
  • Epoxy GRP composite sandwich construction for light weight, stiffness and a long competitive life.
  • Easily driven with a reasonably fine bow and sufficient waterline width aft for stability
  • Flared topsides give reserve buoyancy and the moulded-in wings add more
  • Spray rails on the chines give excellent water release and a drier ride
Foils
  • Pivoting centreboard and rudder chosen for user friendliness
  • Launching and recovery are easy and serious damage risk from grounding is largely eliminated
Cockpit
  • Most people think the RS100 is just about the most comfortable hiking boat they’ve ever sailed
  • Mainsheet jammer well forward in the cockpit for smooth transition in light wind tacks and gybes, without digging the stern
  • Vang and Cunningham controls are lead to the sides of the wings and the centreboard has a simple uphaul / downhaul system
Spars
  • The carbon fibre mast is in two main parts for easy transport on a car roof or in a 20’ shipping container
  • A removable bottom stump extends the mast length for the 10.2 m2 sail
  • Shrouds, but no forestay, means the rig can work automatically upwind
  • The shrouds stop the rig bending forwards under spinnaker loads downwind – important to keep the bow up and reduce nose diving without the need for a super-stiff mast which would be heavier and expensive
  • A compression strut vang – easy to adjust and highly effective
Sails
  • Three mainsail size options: 10.2m, 8.4m and 7.4m
  • Asymmetric gennaker with big chute beneath the foredeck for quick hoists and drops
  • The lack of a forestay and the mast well aft, mean that the spinnaker has a huge amount of space to blow through easily when gybing
