RS Sailing has appointed two new dealers in Ireland following the retirement of Belfast–based McCready Sailboats. The Irish National Sailing and Powerboat School has been appointed in Dublin with a new chandlery appointment in Northern Ireland too.
New RS agent Kenneth Rumball of the Irish National Sailing and Powerboat School is one of Ireland's top sailors with success in the Optimist, 420, Fireball and offshore. Rumball brings a wealth of racing and sailing knowledge to the team. Together with Brian Spence (formerly of McCready) Bosun Bobs Chandlery will represent the brand in NI.
The RS400, 200 and Feva classes are widely sailed across Ireland.
This is an exciting year for RS Sailing who celebrate 25 years racing with one of the world’s biggest ever dinghy events when the RS Games kicks off at Weymouth in August. The anniversary year will also see the launch of three new boats.
New for 2018
RS Zest - Brand new compact boat that replaces the RS Quba and delivers more crew space and practical, enjoyable features than older generation rivals.
RS CAT14 - This boat takes the enjoyment and handling associated with beach cats to a new level.
RS21 - Progressive keelboat solution for club programs and sailor teams. The RS21 is specially designed for fleet purchase, with attributes that will appeal to individual buyers as well.
