RS200 Class Racing
RS200s have been recognised as a group within the K Class since 2005 and there are now almost thirty boats racing on a regular basis in the Club's handicap/pursuit races. The class is also seen as a key pathway to keep teenagers engaged in sailing at the Pond as they progress from Cadets. The Club has therefore decided the RS200 should become a "Favoured Class" in its own right so that one-design class racing can be organised.
Class racing for RS200s will be on Saturdays between the end of Youth Coaching in the morning and the start of the afternoon pursuit race. In the winter this will allow one race; in the summer two races back-to-back. The Class will be providing its own race teams with the start line set from a Committee Boat and race teams being awarded average points.
The RS200 Winter Series starts on Saturday 8th January race start time 13.00.
The first start (Cadets/Teras) for the Saturday Pursuit Race will remain 13.45.
RS200s will continue to race with the K Class on Sundays during 2022, with results being split out if enough boats enter.
