After two years of design evolution and prototype testing, the RS 100 had taken the sailing world by storm before production even began.
The development process was followed online all over the world. Many sailors were given the opportunity to test prototype boats then give their detailed feedback on all key design elements of the boat, helping to define where the performance and handling were pitched, and the myriad of options surrounding all significant features.
Now there is no gamble - following this development process we know for sure that the RS100 is the boat that a broad range of sailors really want to race.
Over one hundred and twenty RS 100s had been ordered around the world before production started probably the highest ever pre-sales in the history of racing sailboat launches and a likely indication of the success in store for this class.
