RS300 Features

Hull

  • Advanced computer design process – as used on the RS600 – produces a stunning, mathematically fair hull form
  • Narrow waterline and fine entry provide easily driven acceleration and speed
  • Flared topsides give leverage and reserve stability
  • Ergonomic deck and cockpit design, arrived at after hours of development, gives a comfortable bent leg hiking position
  • Staggeringly light
  • Bullet proof epoxy foam sandwich construction system so the RS300 will be fast for years

Foils

  • Daggerboard for low drag efficiency
  • Rake-back system to prevent damage if you run aground.
  • Lifting rudder for easy launch and recovery
  • Sophisticated GRP sandwich construction gives strong, light, high performance foils

Rig

  • Long mainsail luff – crucial to power and speed
  • Centre of effort kept down with a low tack position
  • Steeply raked boom to give clearance for the sailor further aft
  • “Soft” sail and carbon composite mast work together to give exceptional automatic gust response from the rig
  • Mylar / Dacron sail, for long life and shape control
  • No shrouds so the boom can be fully squared on a run for maximum power and VMG

Performance Equalised

  • Specially developed performance equalisation system to give a broad competitive weight range. The problem faced when equalising a dinghy of this type is that much of the time downwind is spent sitting “in” the boat, so leverage equalisation does not have any effect
  • The RS300 uses two sail sizes to ensure that the power to weight ratio and handling characteristics are similar for both large and small sailors
