Sailor Testimonials

De RS500 is een fantastisch speeltje. In Maart 2010 was ik op zoek naar een aantrekkelijke moderne boot die ik samen met mijn vriendin kan zeilen en die een gezellige klasse heeft om het plezier er in te houden. De 470 viel absoluut af, te veel competitie, te weinig plezier. De 29er was meer een jeugdboot en al dat oude hout wat in Nederland rondvaart vond ik ook niet erg aantrekkelijk. Dan moest ik zelf maar op zoek naar een nieuwe boot. Het werd de RS500.

Het allereerste WK 2010 was in Nederland en was de start van een zeer vriendelijke maar toch competitieve klasse. Het is de ideale boot voor de gevorderde wedstrijdzeiler die niet houdt van de druk van een olympische klasse. Maar ook erg bereikbaar voor de zeilers die nog in de kinderschoenen staan van het racen met kleine boten.

Twee jaar later is de Internationale RS500 klasse een van de snelst groeiende klasses in Europa. En dat is geweldig! Het trekt de meest vriendelijke en gezellige zeilers. Als je echt van zeilen houdt is het een fantastische klasse om onderdeel van te zijn. Ik ben er erg trots op! Trots omdat we de beste feesten hebben tijdens events. Trots op de sensatie die wij allen voelen als we strijden in de RS500. Maar het meeste nog trots omdat ik een onderdeel mag zijn van deze klasse die de brug slaat tussen het professionele olympische zeilen en de locale "fun" klasse.

We zijn nieuw en wereldwijd verspreid. Sinds 2010 maak ik vrienden voor het leven in heel Europa. En dat is fantastisch! De combinatie van varen en feesten geeft mij waar het om draait: Plezier, Vriendschap en Vrijheid!

My Winning Tip
Make time to practice away from racing. 1 hour focussed training can be worth 10 hours racing.
Keep a sailing diary and record what you learn - don't make the same mistake twice.
Sail the boat flat. The flatter you are the faster you go.
