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!

Champions Profile

Peter Barton & Heather Chipperfield - 2014 RS500 UK Champions
Peter & Heather teamed up in April 2013 with the exciting goal of a 'crash' course for Heather to master trapezing in the 4 months run up to the Swedish World Champs.  That all went well and having podiumed at 2 World Champs and winning the 2014 UK Champs they are now looking forward to the World Champs in Holland in 2015.

My Winning Tip
Start well and sail fast.  Let others make the mistakes.  Never start a tack with the jib cleated.  Be nice to your fellow competitors.
