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.

RS500 XL RS500 S
  • Powerful 100-square-foot Mylar mainsail is great in light winds and tough enough to tackle the big breezes.

  • 37-square-foot jib adds upwind grins.
  • Easily trimmed 31-square-foot jib makes short work of uphill sailing.
