RS 100 sailing
This entry was posted on 09/14/2010.
We took out the demo RS100 over the weekend and logged some miles sailing in the gorge.
Going upwind with 150lb sailor. In the light wind, no problem, in the heavier air later, pulled the vang on hard and raked the mast forward to get it to track well. A 170lb sailor will likely not need to do much of that :)
Launching the spinnaker is simple. The boat is very stable downwind, neutral helm and not much load on the lines. Spinnaker is easy to trim and gybing is rather simple.
Here's our YouTube video of downwind sailing!
