The RS Quba can be sailed with a main sail or main and jib, however it also has features like the optional additional crew foot-straps and moveable mainsheet block which make it more convenient as a double handed sailing dinghy than rivals.
“The RS Quba seems to clearly line up against the Laser Pico, the ubiquitous rotomoulded beginner boat for one adult or two children… The RS Quba provides a similar package, enhanced by better sailing performance, slicker features and a wider range of use…”

"Fantastic - Quba "Cucumber" has had so much use and abuse with all combinations of us… "
Malcolm Morley – Dad of Hamish (7), Iona (6), Anna (4) and Poppy’s husband
"We think the Qubas are absolutely brilliant – we use them for one or two kids or an adult and there is no better training dinghy with this versatility. They’re strong, stable, easy to handle and can be reefed in moments, even on the water by an instructor in a RIB. They sail so well that we see the Quba as a key training boat... "
