The RS Games was officially launched with a little party at the Dinghy Sailing Show on Saturday. Everyone was thirsty; the beer took approximately 30 seconds to disappear!

RS Sailing and the RS Class Associations are delighted to commemorate 25 years of RS Sailing. In celebration, we are organising one of the biggest dinghy regattas ever held, hosted by Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy, the sailing venue for the 2012 London Olympics during August 2018.

Entry is open, and we need you to enter NOW to encourage all your mates. If you enter now, you will receive a free RS Games logo-ed Rooster tee shirt and neck sleeve. Enter now, but you do not have to pay until late May to ensure you get the £50 early entry discount - we will send you a reminder. Any changes to boat class, number, name, crew can be made at a later date, let's just get your names down!

All information about the event, including NoR, on-line entry, etc. is at www.rssailing.org/rsgames The all-important Social Programme will be finalised by the end of this month, but there will be a party every night as our 'Sailor's Hub' (outside bars, stage, big screens for the day's action, DJ, eateries, etc.) for pre- and post-sailing fun.

Join us!
