THE RS HERITAGE CLASSES

Our heritage classes are a testament to some fantastic UK boat builders, great designs and the incredible RS community which makes our racing classes so special. For over 20 years these classes have been raced hard on the water across many generations of sailors. Many of the faces within the classes have changed over the year’s but the RS ways of racing and sailing have not.  All sailors involved over the years are still very much a part of the heartbeat and true heritage of our brand.

Although they’re no longer in production, sailors can relish in the ability to pick up an affordable pre-loved boat, packed full of performance whilst joining a mature Class Association that practically wrote the book on how to après sail. Still under the reassuring care of the RS Customer Care team, the Heritage Classes can keep their distinguished boats not just afloat but absolutely on point. Racing at the front of these classes isn’t for the faint hearted but you wont find a friendlier bunch of people who are passionate about racing great boats and getting more people involved in our awesome sport. These Heritage Classes are heroic. 

RS events are like skiing in the summer – you turn up, have a blast in the fresh air, come ashore absolutely knackered and then relive it all whilst partying all night with a bunch of good mates.
