2018 proved to be a spectacular year for the RS600s.

From starting the season with our 600 specific stand at the Dinghy Show to ending the year with boats vying for wins in the Selden Sailjuice winter series..... via a full calendar of our own events which included a spectacular 30-boat Nationals at Weymouth as part of the RS Games.

All in all a season that really couldn't have gone any better.

Fantastic turnouts to our events and more and more helms taking part in the big regattas has seen a real buzz surrounding the class.

The 2019 season is set to prove just as exciting if not more as we, again, appear at the RYA Dinghy Show to kick off our year (Stand A26 in the Great Hall).

This year's display will feature a brand-new boat! Built especially for the RS Games last year so is the newest 600 on the planet and looks as spectacular as ever.

With several of our helms hosting over the weekend, you can be sure to find out all you need about the boat, the class, our ethos and future plans.

There's a fantastic camaraderie amongst our sailors and an ingrained philosophy of helping everyone to get the best from their 600 sailing experience.

So come and see us, have a chat, check out the boat and see if 600 sailing is for you.

Those future plans include another superb programme of events, which includes something of a 'Watch-this-space' Nationals at Stone SC in the Summer that will be an absolute must-do event for anyone that sails our magnificent boat. Beg/Borrow (but don't steal!) a 600 if you have to, but make sure this event goes onto your events list for 2019!

All looking great for the upcoming season then as we continue to grow and develop the 600 class and here's wishing all of our UK sailors 'Fair Winds' for 2019, whichever class you're in.
