This decision enables the RS21 Class to host a number of international level, World Sailing endorsed events including World Championships.
RS Sailing technical chief executive and co-designer of the RS21, Alex Newton-Southon, said the decision further cemented the RS21 in the keelboat sector. “I want to thank all those passionate individuals and the sailing programs they represent that have worked hard to establish the RS21 so far and, on behalf of the rest of the RS team, we look forward to seeing this activity grow to new levels as a result of this exciting news.”
RS21 fleets are well established in the United Kingdom, Italy, Norway, Germany, Poland, USA, Bermuda and Australia and fleet development projects are well underway in other parts of the world such as the Middle East, Central and South America and Asia.
This latest successful application now brings the total number of RS classes that are able to promote themselves as World Sailing Class Associations to six, with the RS Tera, RS Feva, RS Aero, RS100 and RS500 classes all having enjoyed international class recognition.
