Double-handed speedster RS Sailing Logo

The RS500 is a fantastic planing platform that the whole family can enjoy thanks to its sturdy hull construction and its (optional) dual sailplans: bend-on the smaller, more manageable Dacron sails for training days or for heading out in a breeze with a featherweight crew, or break out the higher-performance Mylar sails for a spin around the racecourse or for days when your crew weight can handle the breeze.

The RS500 delivers fantastic value and go-fast grins in a snappy, easily driven skiff. The double-hander is quick and balanced upwind, and its gennaker provides extra horsepower when sailing deeper angles; an optional second set of trapeze wires can be added if a crew is struggling to keep the boat flat.

With a maximum crew capacity of 315 pounds, the RS500 is ideal for parents and children, mixed crews, couples, or serious-minded sailing partners in pursuit of National or World Championship titles.
