A high performance double trapeze skiff built for speed. Offering the excitement of skiff sailing with high quality construction and design, the RS 800 is more manageable and easier to own than comparable skiffs. The RS 800 is lightweight yet durable with carbon spars, mylar sails, and user-friendly controls. Like other skiffs, it’s not easy to sail at first, but with practice and technique offers huge rewards.

Description

Details

    Hull
  • Long and narrow on the waterline to reduce the drag.
  • Flared topsides give reserve buoyancy for easier handling.
  • Large, carefully positioned kick blocks make the transition from cockpit to trapeze very easy.
  • Cockpit design offers the helmsman a secure steering position from which to initiate maneuvers.
  • Large spinnaker chute forward of the jib tack for fast hoists and drops with minimum loads.
  • Incredibly light 62kg hull weight. Ready to sail the whole outfit is a staggering 110kg light.
  • High tech construction system uses the tried, tested and immensely strong RS epoxy foam sandwich system.

  • Foils
  • Daggerboard for low drag.
  • Lifting rudder for easy launch and recovery.
  • Sophisticated GRP sandwich construction gives strong, light, high performance foils.

  • Rig
  • Very light carbon composite mast and the flexible top section delivers excellent response in puffs.
  • Sealed mast to reduce the tendency for the boat to invert when capsized.
  • Mainsail and jib are built from ultra light, strong and high visibility mylar / kevlar laminate.
  • Only the top two mainsail battens are full length, to create a light and forgiving rig.
  • Self tacking jib ensures easy maneuvers, especially offwind.
  • Asymmetric spinnaker design with relatively short foot to minimize sheet loads and a high clew to aid visibility.
