The twin wire skiff with the kind of performance many sailors dream about. Graduating from youth racing or stepping up from slower boats – this is the skiff class for all – men and women, young or not. Minimal weight and hull drag mean the rig doesn’t have to be enormous to develop awesome speeds. So the loads are manageable by both sexes and performance equalization ensures that mixed teams usually stand on the RS Racing Circuit podiums. And that leads to friends, parties and an intoxicating skiff racing lifestyle.
