A modern classic from the outset, the RS400 launched RS and built our reputation. It is fast, well mannered, beautifully built and attracts great sailors. This gennaker powered, double-handed hiking Class is as popular today as it was when it all began. The powerful rig and high volume hull suits medium to heavy, often mixed, teams. In clubs and on the RS Racing Circuit the RS400 gives amazing, one-design competition. It has become one of the most successful modern classes with great club and Class communities. You may have guessed… the RS400 has a special place in our hearts!
