Come on someone, spill the beans, I don't want to have to ring them up...


The question is, are there any beans to spill? Does anyone know? Do RS know?

Hi All

Of the number of different projects currently being investigated for viability by RS Sailing (which could be aimed for different markets or countries than the UK), one of these was in the water last weekend in Salcombe.

At this stage we're not ready to talk about the detail of the project because many of the defining facets of the boat are undecided and subject to change. Additionally we need to work full through this process to decide when and if to go ahead. 

We'll release broad details of the concept for you all to digest in due course, but specifics are very transient at this point so best not dwell too much on any snippets coming through.

No more detail at this stage I'm afraid!

Fair enough. You'll of course not be able to stop any photos being taken. Secret tsting's difficult if you do it at a major sailing location!

Nah...maybe they haven't told him, c'mon, you can't come in here and rattle the bean can without spilling more than that.

What were those things on the water at Salcombe then?

We need photos now, before you make another blunder without the help of the 'hive mind'

Hmm what's to be done,maybe we'd better kidnap someone who knows family and threaten to send them back.

Looks like a deliberate tactic to create a bit of online gossip. Looks like it worked.

I would suggest, that we calmly wait for it to appear, and, then either sl*g it off as a heap of junk, or congratulate them on getting it right. Car manufacturers test cars on the road in disguise to stop all the gossip, it's a bit harder with a boat. Good luck RS, let's hope it is the ideal boat we have been waiting for (Although, it will have to be a blinder, to see me swop from the Blaze!!)

Jon

Let's hope so ... Do we agree what such a vessel would look like?

Nah speculating is much more fun.
