Description

Exhilarating hiking single-hander with gennaker. Beautifully built using epoxy sandwich construction and carbon spars, the RS100 offers exhilarating racing and incorporates a host of features that make the performance widely attainable. Three rig sizes cover a wide sailor range and the cockpit is incredibly comfortable in all conditions, on open sea and inland water. The RS100 is responsive and highly rewarding for sailors who relish the challenge.

FEATURES

Hull

Epoxy GRP composite sandwich construction for light weight, stiffness and a long competitive life.
Easily driven with a reasonably fine bow and sufficient waterline width aft for stability
Flared topsides give reserve buoyancy and the moulded-in wings add more
Spray rails on the chines give excellent water release and a drier ride

Foils

Pivoting centreboard and rudder chosen for user friendliness
Launching and recovery are easy and serious damage risk from grounding is largely eliminated

Cockpit

Most people think the RS100 is just about the most comfortable hiking boat they’ve ever sailed
Mainsheet jammer well forward in the cockpit for smooth transition in light wind tacks and gybes, without digging the stern
Vang and Cunningham controls are lead to the sides of the wings and the centreboard has a simple uphaul / downhaul system

Spars

The carbon fibre mast is in two main parts for easy transport on a car roof or in a 20’ shipping container
A removable bottom stump extends the mast length for the 10.2 m2 sail
Shrouds, but no forestay, means the rig can work automatically upwind
The shrouds stop the rig bending forwards under spinnaker loads downwind
