Exceptionally successful, competitive, racing class.


Adrenaline packed racing and a full-on social scene. The RS200 is one of the most popular two person sailboats of today. Perfect for moderate weight teams, it's a winner with mixed crews, young sailors and family teams - at clubs, championships and on the RS Racing Circuit. Strict one-design rules keep the competition tight and the budget in control. So it's all about exciting sailing and a good time ashore in the RS community. This Class attracts rock stars and newbies like almost no other. It was one of RS's first - and it's still one of our favorites.


A wide range of sailor sizes and experience levels can enjoy the RS200. Low sheet loads on the jib and an easy one-line asymmetric system mean the RS200 responds to finesse rather than physique. Fully adjustable toe straps suit long and short legs. The rig encourages this size range too: modern developments in power control mean that there is a broader competitive weight range and improved handling in all conditions. Great for both men and women, young and old.
