Cowes Week is the pinnacle of the UK's keelboat racing scene. The Solent will be welcoming hundreds of boats to the South Coast in 4 weeks' time, and this year with the addition of the RS21.

Cowes Week, the world's best-known sailing regatta, brings together sailors from around the world for an amazing week of challenging but fun racing. The RS21s will be setting off from the Sportsboat class start line on Saturday 10th August - Monday 12th August to compete in round-the-cans racing on the Solent. The racing is set to be competitive and the RS21 Cowes Week trophy will be presented at the regatta prize giving on Friday 16th August.

In addition to the on-water antics, Cowes Week also has a legendary social side, with the main village turning itself into a festival ashore; with open air bars, live music stages and many famous black-tie balls. Don't miss out!

To enter this exciting event, head onto the RS Sailing Store Website. The price of £999 includes your entry fee, charter fee and boat storage at UKSA. If you would also like to be involved with accommodation and food, on and off the water with UKSA, please contact Mark Randerson on

There is no better time to purchase an RS21 and join the building fleet in the UK. Cowes week is just the start of an exciting racing calendar. The RS21 Class Association will be releasing the details of the RS21 National Championships, 19th October, a Eurocup event as well as the Hamble winter series, very shortly.

Thanks to the new partnership with ePropulsion, RS Sailings preferred integrated electric drive system, who have donated three units to be given away to UK customers. Read more about the partnership between ePropulsion and RS Sailing here.

The next three RS21s to be sold in the UK will come with an electric drive system included in the price. For full details of this one-time offer, contact Steve Dean
