RS Games: This is going to be big
Published on July 7th, 2018
In just under a month, over 1500 competitors, in 1000 RS boats are expected, from around 30 nations will be descending on Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy for the dinghy sailing event of the year – the 2018 RS Games.
Set to be a true celebration of the life-long community and lifestyle that is so special to many sailors around the world, the RS Games kicks off with the RS Aero and RS Tera World Championships, followed by the RS Feva Europeans and RS Venture Connect Open.
The latter half of the event sees the Nationals and Europeans for the RS100, RS300, RS400, RS600, RS700, RS800 and RS Vareo classes, concluding with the massive RS200 Nationals and RS500 Worlds.
The 2018 event on August 4-25 looks set to dwarf the last massive RS Games that saw 9 classes and 900 competitors back in 2011. Weymouth Bay and Portland Harbour between them provide some of best and most versatile race areas in the United Kingdom.
