RS Classes Head Inland to Lough Ree

10th April 2012
RS Classes Head Inland to Lough Ree

The Irish RS Dinghy Class Association Inland Championship is set to take place at Lough Ree Yacht Club on the weekend of the 28th and 29th of April.

This will be the first time the Feva class will join up the RS200's and RS400's for a regional event. It will also be the inaugural RS Inland Championship. The Notice of Race is available to download below.

No doubt the ever popular Feva's will be sharp following on from The ISA Mitsubishi Youth Nationals this weekend.

The RS200's and 400's classes have seen very strong growth over the past season and are sure to be hotly contested.

The RS200 which is seen as the natural progression from the Feva has seen the class starting to emerge in new areas along with the traditional stronghold of Greystones. Dun Laoghaire is now home to five 200's. Newcastle YC in Co. Down now boasts a fleet of five 200's and Howth YC recently saw the arrival the first 200 to the club.

The RS400 has seen similar growth with five Dun Laoghaire based 400's, the continually growing fleet in Greystones and a very strong showing in the North were no less than fourteen RS400's contested the Ballyhome Icebreaker series.

With such a strong calendar it all bodes well for the upcoming season and the continued growth of all three classes.
