The RS700 - Quick, exciting and user friendly - the perfect combination
Performance equalisation for sailors of all sizes
Typically exciting and amazing RS events

The RS700 is a super quick trapezed genneker weapon - Yet is also the most user friendly single handed skiff by far. Not a bad trick.

The RS700's performance equalisation system means that winners can be large or small, giving great racing and big atmosphere on the sponsored RS Racing Circuits. There is a cult following for the RS700 and it's easy to see why.

"Having sailed International 14's, and 18 foot skiffs, there was really only one choice when buying a singlehander. What other boat combines the thrills and speed of the highest performance boats, with the simplicity and ease of a one design skiff from the RS stable. No bimbling, no fuss, just take off the cover and in minutes I'm blasting along with the fastest of them. The RS700's equalisation system means that people of all weights are competitive, leading to really close racing. And being an RS boat, the après sail is pretty awesome too!"
Paul Bayliss - RS700 National Champion

"If you feel like getting too old for boats like the RS700 - it is about time to get one. It makes you feel much younger!" Christian Brandt - Germany

Hull

  • Long hull with wide enough waterline provide a relatively stable platform. Stability and little tendency to nosedive are essential to make this type of sailing attainable to a range of sailors.
  • Flared topsides offer reserve stability.
  • Tried and tested RS epoxy sandwich construction system - proven in terms of ultra-light weight, high strength and virtually zero water absorption.
  • The deck at the bow offers maximum volume to shed water quickly if the boat drives through a wave.
  • Spinnaker chute mounted as far aft as possible to keep the weight back and the spinnaker clear of the water.
  • Cockpit design allows a secure helming position from which to initiate manoeuvres or hoist and drop the spinnaker - another crucial design element to make the boat as user friendly as possible.
  • Spinnaker hoisting and dropping made simple by the large chute mouth and slick pump action halyard and downhaul systems.

Rig

  • Carbon composite mast. Ultra-light weight with dynamic gust response in the tip.
  • Mainsail has a long luff for efficiency and power.
  • Only one full length top batten, plus three short battens for a "soft" configuration which gives a light and user friendly rig.
  • Kevlar reinforced mylar sail fabric is used for strength, low stretch and high visibility.
  • User friendly, highly effective rake and flattener system reduces the power to make the boat faster and more controllable in strong winds.
  • Asymmetric spinnaker - high aspect for low sheet loads and good visibility. Silicone coated fabric makes hoists and drops faster, easier and extends the life of the sail. Downwind performance is simply sensational.

Foils

  • Dagger board can be raked to balance the boat in a breeze when sailing with the rig de-powered.
  • Lifting rudder for easy launching and recovery.
  • Sophisticated GRP sandwich construction gives strong, light, high performance foils.

Performance equalised racing

  • The performance equalisation system with adjustable width wings has been refined and means winners genuinely can be big or small.
