RS Feva class adopted by Malta

A sixteen boat fleet of RS Fevas was recently delivered to Malta, the latest country to adopt the class, and more are expected in the coming months.

Following evaluation of boats suitable to provide a pathway from entry level sailing to bigger youth dinghies, the spearhead Maltese Birzebbuga Sailing Club selected the Feva and asked Paul Debono of Fairwind Sailing to become an RS dealer to co-ordinate the orders and import the boats.

Paul Childs, a qualified instructor from RS Sailing, visited Malta to run an initial coaching weekend, helping to set up the boats and introduce the young sailors to Feva sailing techniques.

'As usual, the kids were really excited about the Fevas and they had a brilliant time on their first weekend' he reports. 'Some of them are clearly already talented young sailors and I reckon we’ll see some of them heading towards the top of the class pretty quickly. But the main thing is… they all had fun.'

Adoption of the RS Feva class means Malta follows the pathway adopted by an ever increasing number of nations. The Feva can be used for training as well as racing, with the rotomoulded polyethylene construction system giving a durable and affordable boat. Young sailors are attracted by the performance, modern style and asymmetric spinnaker.

The 2011 RS Feva World championships, sponsored by Allen Performance Hardware and Magic Marine, take place in Holland in late July with entries expected to exceed last years 150 boat fleet from as far afield as Hong Kong.
