The first of the RS range to arrive in Auckland are with their new owners, and will be sailing for Christmas.

As well as their use in racing the RS range provide make excellent recreational sailing - at home of the beach, or lake.

With a new container of boats just arrived in Auckland, on our final Christmas countdown piece, we bring you five of the best RS Sailing videos we have found on Youtube. Just in case you need a little further inspiration.

If you have your heart set on a boat for Christmas, the only question is: what kind of RS Sailing boat will you choose? Thanks to a new shipment, all are available brand new, right now.

  • The single handed, high performance RS Aero
  • The two handed RS Feva - fun and stable
  • The RS Quest - the ideal bach boat, for sailing together

To see all the available RS range in New Zealand, visit nzsailcraft.co.nz to get info and make one yours.

Contact Hayden Whitburn and the team at NZ Sailcraft to order your RS Quest, RS Feva, RS Cat 14 or the RS Aero.

Ask about their super-deals on these newly imported boats and to arrange a test sail - if you need it.


One new owner, wanting to maximise sailing time, has installed DockPro floating marina/jetty to take the RS Quest, but the same setup can be installed anywhere one of the RS range are sailed for recreational sailing and fun racing against the local fleet. Dockpro makes a quick job of launching and retrieval.

Getting dressed is the longest part of going sailing with this setup.
