RS21 – Ideal club racing keelboat

January 12, 2018
RS21 Keelboat Sailing Cowes

RS21 Keelboat Overview

The brand new RS21 keelboat responds to the need for a progressive, simple and affordable solution for keelboat clubs that increasingly see the opportunity for fleet ownership, league competition and training.

Development of the boat was inspired by direct approach to RS Sailing by several leading keelboat programmes and the public unveiling will be at the Boot, Dusseldorf boat show in Germany from January 20 – 28.

The design puts close racing over ultimate performance – convenient ownership over complexity – it maximises low maintenance and value. This is the boat to bring wider availability, enjoyment and popularity back to keelboat racing.

The RS21 is both high quality and a sound financial proposition. Realistic costs allow appealing club charter fees – or affordable investment by syndicates of sailing friends. Team up and do it together.

Sustainability

RS Sailing’s sustainability focus means the RS21 also leads the way in terms of eco-friendly construction, with the hull built at Cowes on the Isle of Wight using bio-derived resins and recycled core materials. The deck design and lifting or removable keel system facilitate stacking for freight and travel efficiency. An optional rechargeable and retractable electric propulsion system is also integrated into the design. This boat is all about the future of sailing, in all its aspects.

Key features:

  • LOA 6.34m – Beam 2.2m – Draft 1.38m
  • No-hiking rule
  • 2-part carbon fibre mast – for convenient storage and transport
  • Retractable carbon composite bowsprit
  • One Design and Club sails specification options
  • Optional symmetrical spinnaker
  • Optional integrated, rechargeable & retractable electric sail-drive propulsion
  • Stowage aboard for all equipment to improve operational speed & efficiency
  • Integrated data logger & innovative, cost efficient electronics option

 

RS Sailing is now the world’s leading small sailboat brand and has created some of the most successful classes of this era, from the inspirational RS Feva for young sailors to the technologically ground-breaking, ultra-light RS Aero. The RS21 represents a safe purchase and seems assured of success.

You can see the RS21 at Boot, Dusseldorf and full information will also go live on www.RSsailing.com ahead of the Show. Order books are open now.
