The new RS Quest family and training dinghy has made its Dun Laoghaire debut, thanks to its new RS Irish agents based at the east coast port.
The INSS used the boat recently for RYA and ISA instructor training courses, leading school founder Alistair Rumball to declare the new marque 'very versatile'. Top marks indeed!
The RS Quest is a modern family or training dinghy with features that move the game forward. Big enough for an instructor and 2 or 3 pupils – perfect for Mum or Dad and youngsters – small enough to handle easily ashore and afloat. Inspired by the UK Sea Cadets to replace their aging fleet, the RS Quest has rapidly become the best-selling dinghy of its type worldwide.
Durable rotomoulded polyethylene construction – space and stability – reefing, spinnaker, stowage and a host of other options. It’s not easy to make it all work but our development team have nailed it on this boat. With options of Symmetrical or Asymmetrical Spinnaker use there really are all the options available.
"We have chosen the Quest due to its huge versatility. From getting children afloat for the first time to advanced adult teaching, there now is one boat that can do it all", according to Kenny Rumball.
