The cost of an RS21 including a genneker and road trailer is about 31,600, the Elite complete with a road trailer about 38,500

So RS think that the purchase cost can be off set by charter fees. How much would the club charter fee need to be to make it viable for a club to buy one or several?

I assume that any club thinking of buying one or two would not be borrowing money to do so.
How many clubs have 30-60,000 in the bank? I'd assume that the only one that do are on the Solent and are using London money. However there is always Salcombe........ Wink

I think that we are more than happy with our Yawls ... and we can pull up our centreplates when we run aground  Tongue

I think I would be looking at a VX1 if I had the dosh
