Calling all RS800 sailors!

Read RS800 co Chair Luke McEwen’s great call out to the RS800 fleet here:

2019 will be the 20th anniversary of the RS800 class.  To celebrate, the European Championships in July is returning to Lake Garda, spiritual home of the RS800, and an awesome Nationals is being planned at Eastbourne SSC in early September.  The Nationals will include a Reunion event for all past and current RS800 sailors, details to be announced – watch this space!

After the biggest Nationals for five years at this year’s RS Games at WPNSA, demand for boats is already high and the RS800 Facebook page is full of requests for second hand boats.  So if you have an RS800 and can’t sail it in 2019 please consider selling or lending it to someone keen to race.  The most popular places to advertise and look for boats for sale are on the RS800 class association page and Apollo Duck.  RS Sailing also have new boats for sale.  If you can get a boat and race in 2019, come along and join in!
