The RS 800 is an accessible twin trapeze skiff with weight equalisation allowing it to be easily sailed by any competent sailors. The fleet at Itchenor is focused on fun, competitive club racing, with boats competing at National and European events on a regular basis. The current fleet has competitive boats of all ages, with mixed and female only crews competing in every race. We have two class boats, one helm main and one crew main, which can be hired by anyone keen to try the RS 800 at Itchenor. Experienced members of the fleet will always be happy to share tips / go for a sail to help you get the best out of your boat.
We race at Itchenor on alternate weekends through the sailing season, on the rising to high tide as well as several weekend events. We plan an annual training day with an experienced coach from the fleet (usually a past national champion) in the early season to help everyone shake off the cobwebs!
- Training: n/a.
- Racing: Pretty much every other weekend throughout the season.
