Although saddened to hear of the IPC Decision not to reinstate Sailing into the program of events at the 2028 Paralympic Games, RS Sailing will continue to support the growth of inclusive sailing globally by maximizing activity within the RS Venture Connect Class.
In many ways, not being included in the Paralympic Games opens up some exciting opportunities for the sport of sailing as far as developing innovative competition formats that can be delivered through a truly international events series.
RS Sailing has and always will continue to be a champion of inclusive sailing, and the experience we have gained in 25+ years of building racing classes that engage a wider community that, purely the sailors, will be put to good use in growing inclusive sailing for sailors with a disability.
Sailing is an amazingly liberating experience. The award-winning RS Venture Connect, with its Seated Control System (SCS) makes it possible for almost anyone to go sailing – and that means a lot to us. Find out more here – www.rssailing.com/project/rs-venture-connect-scs
