The RS21 Class are pleased to announce two new appointments within the Class, they have appointed Fanny Rogers as their Class Secretary alongside Lucy Jameson who has been appointed to manage the RS21 Charter Fleet.

Fanny Rogers, who is a successful keelboat racer, has been appointed Class Secretary. With a background crammed with a sailing pedigree in Holland, Fanny has a wealth of knowledge and experience to bring to the Class. Fanny has previously been the Sport Sponsor Marketing Manager for the Dutch Olympic Sailing team and has won an array of National and International Championship titles, in a J22, RS500 and RS21. In addition to the core administration for the Class, Fanny will be organising the UK and European RS21 events and the 2020 calendar is already looking very busy.

Lucy Jameson, renowned for running World Class events, is very much looking forward to working with the RS21 Class and managing their charter fleet. Lucy will be working with the British Keelboat League and the RS21 Class Association and will be the point of contact for anything charter related. With an abundance of experience working with RS Sailing as Class Secretary for the RS Tera class and now the RS Feva Class, both Internationally and here in the UK, Lucy knows what it takes to run successful events. She is looking forward to using her knowledge to ensure that customers have a great experience when chartering.

These two new appointments will allow the RS21 class to continue going from strength to strength and ensure that 2020 brings another year of growth for the Class. The Classes aim is to preserve many of the Corinthian sailing values that are held so dear by an emphatic majority of sailors who have the joy of calling our sport their hobby or passion. The RS21 was launched in 2018 and possesses the potential to challenge the status quo in the keelboat racing community. The boat provides the perfect balance of those traditional Corinthian racing values, with the latest technology and most innovative keelboat design, to sailors across the globe.
