RS400 Demo Boat - the 2021 plan for the RS Class Association RS400 demo boat has been agreed:

  • Notts County SC, now-18th June
  • Warsash SC - 19th June-2nd October
  • Leigh & Lowton SC - 3rd October onwards
There is a Scottish demo boat for sailors based in Scotland too.

The demo boat is funded by the RS Class Association, with support having been generously received from Rain & Sun, RS Sailing and West Country Boat Repairs this year too. It's a great way to try RS400 sailing and see if the RS400 is the right boat for you - we have seen club fleet sizes increase and new sailors come into the fleet on the regional tours and Rooster National Tour after sailing the demo.

Please email if you are thinking of joining the RS400 fleet and would like a trial sail with your own sailing partner or a regular RS400 sailor.

Thanks to our brilliant team of volunteers for making this happen.
