Premiere Sailing League USA chooses RS21 as the new boat for Stadium Sailing

August 16, 2018
Premiere Sailing League

Launch Event Scheduled for September at Grosse Pointe Yacht Club

 

Detroit, Mich. (August 15, 2018) – The Premiere Sailing League USA (PSL) has announced its choice of the new RS21 to elevate the dynamic of the sport through its stadium sailing program. RS Sailing, the largest small boat manufacturer in the world, debuted the 21’ keelboat in January 2018 to address the need for a progressive, simple, and affordable solution for keelboat clubs that are seeking solutions to growing fleet ownership, league competition and sail training.

“It is exciting to be one of the first to sail a brand-new boat,” said PSL USA President Benjamin Klatzka who travelled to Southampton, England, in April to test hull number three which the RS Team had fresh out of the factory. “Sailing together with the designer, I saw not only the limits on a windy day but also why this boat is so special and the right choice for stadium sailing, team racing, youth and family sailing.”

Like the PSL USA, RS Sailing was born from a passion for the sport. With a goal to be the brand to increase participation and utilizing the latest design and technology to create high performance boats, the RS Sailing range was created for beginners, families, clubs, programs and schools, all developed by the desire to advance the sport of sailing for everyone. Their approach has earned the company numerous international awards; in early August the RS21 was nominated for the 2019 European Yacht of the Year award.

“We’re proud that RS Sailing designs have built some of the most vibrant class communities, been chosen by leading organization’s globally, and that from our humble beginnings we’ve become the world’s largest small-sailboat manufacturer and America’s fastest growing sailboat line,” said Martin Wadhams, Chairman of RS Sailing.

The Premiere Sailing League USA will hold a demonstration event in Michigan at Grosse Pointe Yacht Club (GPYC), September 7-8, 2018, to explain in detail why the boat is a perfect tool for the modern and pioneering pathways to sailing that GPYC is developing. An RS21 will be available for up to five crew to sail with Ed Furry from Sail22, from 2:00-6:00 p.m. on Friday, September 7, and from 10:00 a.m. through 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 8.

“The RS21 is a competitive, race-ready one-design that nails the desired criteria of a wide range of U.S. owners, clubs and fleets,” said Furry, who helped to fine-tune the layout and mechanics with RS Sailing during the final design stages of the RS21.

For more information about this event, please contact info@premieresailingleague.com or info@rssailing.com whether to schedule a demo or ask questions about the RS21.

Following the demo event at GPYC, RS21s located in the Mid-West, and on the East and West Coasts, will allow demo opportunities to be accommodated on request. The RS21 will also be on display at the Newport International and Annapolis Boat Shows in, respectively, mid-September and October.
