I have a problem with everyone jumping on to the RS this, 9'er that bandwagon.  It's like saying that all Ford Mondeo's are rubbish because the latest Lotus has go faster stripes (It don't mean a thing if it ain't got no Bling!!) 

There is nothing wrong with the existing classes.  I accept that there has to be development and going forwards it is the only way to progress (otherwise we would all still be sailing with cotton sails and clinker hulls).  Perhaps the Rs9er Bling'omatic is not the way to go!

 

BTW I hate Fords!

Yeah, boot the 470 out of the Olympics so I can sail 2 Olympic classes. Bring in the 29er XX, forget about any long decisions the ISAF may make, I've decided it's a good idea......(oh yeah, alternatively the 800)

The 4.7 is perfect for most Ladies (55KG mark). It is a great shame loads more adults do not sail the 4.7 (or medium sized adults the Radial for that matter!)

Hey going back to sailing in an adult class. At my club most of the youth sailors do as there are so few of us we just intergrate with the adults in our fleets (topaz, laser, laser radial, bosun, enterprise) in fact the lady i'm training with most at the moment in my radial is old enough to be my mum
