The hull design, cockpit ergonomics and rig size result from extensive research and development, meaning the RS500 is ideal for sailors across a broad weight range.
The RS500 suits mixed crews, both young and more experienced.
The clear cockpit and user friendly performance mean the RS500 is equally at home blasting along a beach as it is on the race track.
It is fast and fun and growing in popularity.
There is a choice of sails: XL spec Mylar main and jib for Class racing and top performance, or the smaller S spec Dacron sails for durability, training and recreational sailing.
The RS500 hull is built using a stiff and strong GRP composite construction that combines light weight with crisp, responsive handling and a long competitive life.
RS500 complete starts from $14,750 with trolley and top cover and Dacron sails.
