This summer, over 1500 competitors in 1000 RS boats will be descending on Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy for the dinghy sailing event of the year – the 2022 RS Games.

In true RS style, it is set to be a true celebration of the incredible RS community and lifestyle that is so special to many sailors worldwide! The RS Games kicks off with the RS Feva World Championship and RS21 National Championship, followed by the RS Aero Youth World Championship! Ramping up with the National/European Championships for the; RS100, RS300, RS600, RS700, RS800 and RS Vareo classes! Next up is the Celebration Regattas for the RS200 and RS400 classes, and last but by no means least, the RS Games conclude with the RS Tera World Championship, the RS Aero European Championship and the RS500 World Championship with the majority of boats available to charter.

Charter info:

What is included in my charter?

Everything you need to go sailing! All details of your charter are in the charter agreement which you will receive 1 month before the event.

When is the deadline for booking charter boats?

The deadline for booking charter boats is as soon as we sell out or around 2 months before the event takes place, whichever comes first.

Will my boat be rigged?

It is our best intention for the boats to be rigged, ready to sail ie. mast up and sails down. However, depending on the event and timings this is not always possible. We will do our best!

Will my sails be brand new?

The same set of sails are used for the charter season and therefore will be brand new at the start of the season and will be lightly used over the summer.

Do I need to put stickers on my sail if required?

If there are stickers to be applied to your sails for the event you will need to do this yourself and complete the measurement process.

Do I need to arrange my own insurance?

No! Boat insurance is included in your charter price and covered by the damage deposit but the sailor is not insured. In case of an accident this would be covered by your personal insurance.

What do I do if I have damage while sailing?

Please report the damage as soon as you come off the water so we can ensure that the boat is not leaking and the damage will not get worse. We will then complete a damage log which will be sent to RS and we will deduct any cost for the repair from your £500 damage deposit.

With the legendary RS mantra of #sailitliveitloveit driving the event forward, sailors can look forward to having as much fun onshore as they will on the water. Whether it’s your first racing regatta or you are challenging yourself to take home a World Championship title, there will be endless memories to be made and the RS team cannot wait to raise a glass with you all!
