The Sarasota Yacht Club RS21 Winter Series will consist of five events, seven RS Sailing supplied RS21 charter boats will be available to charter alongside private owner entries. With three of the events counting towards a best two out of three series, they are set to be awesome regattas with the winner being crowned the RS21 Midwinter Champion.

In addition to the Winter Series, there are a number of other events to get involved in with the RS21.

An Intercollegiate Regatta is currently being finalised and we welcome Collegiate teams to reach out to us if interested with preferred dates.

The RS21s fleet, affectionately known as the Six Pack, will also be available for charter to race in the St. Petersburg Nood Regatta and Charleston Race Week. If you are not in the Sarasota area, stay tuned for details on the Premiere Sailing League events which will be hosted in six RS21s at Pensacola Yacht Club. Further information can be found here:
