It's a bit like a lightweight vago with a modernised Europe rig on it. Looks good!

The only way they will capture any of the Solo market is if they start building Solos.

perhaps they're going to put the 300 back into production, decks in pink, with a dacron sail, and heavy discount for pond-sailors in the midlands  LOL

A lightweight Vago?

That intimates tupperware, and a centreboard case, how lightweight could it be?

Just to be clear, I know nothing at all about this RS boat and it isn't connected to my Nemesis project. If it is epoxy foam and all carbon spars, then yes it will need serious exploitation of Sri Lankan sweat shops to come in at 4.5k!

My wife has just had a new f.r.p British moth with a full carbon rig and that came in at six grand and I thought that was quite good value. It would take volume( and a sweat shop ) to get that price anywhere near four and a half grand.
