Sail-World.com : 2016 Equipment Evaluations - RS900s 3 days in and looking good
2016 Equipment Evaluations - RS900s 3 days in and looking good

'RS900s at the 2016 Equipment Evaluations'    RS Sailing

The Equipment Evaluations for the 2016 Olympic Sailing Competition are taking place in Santander, Spain from 17-25 March.

RS900s at the 2016 Equipment Trials:


Three days into the trials and we are very happy with the feedback on the RS900 so far. Teams from nine nations have now sailed the boat, and another four teams should sail today.

The trials began with a sudden increase in wind on Saturday which tested many teams and their familiarity with the skiffs, but the RS900s flew down the course and many people commented that they looked great.

Strong winds on Sunday with gusts over 30 knots at times meant the ISAF evaluation panel had little option but to postpone several times before finally cancelling sailing for the day.

Monday’s condition were close to perfect for this still early stage in the week – mainly 10 – 15 knots, which allowed sailors to properly begin to understand each skiff. There are good boats here in Santander, so of course the sailors find some strong points in most of them - overall though, the feedback on the RS900, given to us anyway, has been consistently extremely positive and we could not hope for any more at this stage in the Trials.
