Entry to two of the biggest events on the UK Dinghy Sailing calendar will open at 18:00hrs on Fri 18th February - the Noble Marine Rooster RS200 National Championships, Hayling Island Sailing Club and the Noble Marine Rooster RS400 National Championships, East Lothian Yacht Club.

With the RS200 the UK's most-popular double handed sailing dinghy and the RS400 still attracting big fleets and new sailors over 25 years since it was launched, the events are expected to attract some 300 sailors between them.

Hayling Island Sailing Club are delighted to be welcoming the RS200s to the home of the UK's largest RS200 fleet, where the experienced Mark 'Woodsy' Woods will once again be the PRO, delivering the gate starts that the RS200 nationals are renowned for. Besides the 10 races, there will of course be the legendary RS200 social programme, planned by the class committee and still as yet under wraps.

The RS400 fleet return to Scotland after last visiting East Lothian Yacht Club, North Berwick in 2013. The club are very much looking forward to hosting the RS400s at their unrivalled venue where there are 3 race areas to choose from, great facilities for dinghy parking and launching, a relaxed, cosy clubhouse and plenty in the area for non-sailors to do.

In 2021 the RS200 Nationals reached its entry limit in the first hour of opening and the RS400 entry list rapidly reached 50 boats, so sailors are being urged to get their entries ready for 18:00 on 18th to see if we can break records this year too.

Full details, NoR and entry pages can be found on the RS200 and RS400 Association event websites.
