It is less than six months until the massive RS Games 2018 get underway with RS sailors from around the world coming to Weymouth to race and party. The team from Rooster will be central to the action, both as the official event clothing partner and on the water.

Steve Cockerill, Managing Director and founder of Rooster says: “Rooster and RS have long been brands with shared beliefs and so we are super excited to announce our partnership for the 2018 RS Games. RS Sailing have a proven track record of equipping sailors with boats they love to sail, which fits perfectly with the Rooster ethos of making top quality kit an affordable option for every sailor, whatever the weather. We look forward to working together for the benefit of our great sport and its fanatical following!”

Steve will be at the heart of the RS Games in a variety of ways, including racing to defend his RS Aero 7 World Champion title, clinched after a nail biting final race in Carnac last year.

The RS Games will be one of the largest festivals of dinghy racing anywhere in the world in 2018. Courses will be set both in Portland Harbour and Weymouth Bay and on shore the sailing centre will be geared up to make a fantastic après sail atmosphere for the lively RS crowd. Beer tents, food stands, a main stage with music and videos of the action will create the RS sailors zone and keep everyone together, fed and watered before and after racing.

If you sail an RS, your mates will be there having a good time, hoping you can join them!
