About the RS21 International One Design Class

The RS21 International One Design Class is a modern keelboat, which promoters say is 'responsibly designed with performance racing at its heart'.

The powerful rig and distinct chines are balanced by well-mannered boat handling and an ergonomic deck layout to ensure everyone on board has a vital role and ease of use.

The RS21 was developed with sustainability at the core of its design, not only in terms of materials but also considering the carbon footprint in the supply chain, a reduction in single-use plastics and a focus on efficient logistics.

The RS21 International One Design Class is growing from strength to strength, with fleets active over three continents and racing calendars that escalate each year, nationally and internationally. "Removing the arms race and ensuring epically close racing in the RS21 is the future of keelboat racing," said class aficionados.
