Stunning looks promise a performance to dream about. And the rig control and reefing system make this excitement available to a wide range of sailors.

The RS600 has won the enthusiasm of hundreds of single handed sailors. It is faster than most two person boats and is still one the lightest, most responsive production sailboats around. 

Strong enough to take the punishment, sailing an RS600 is pure adrenaline.


  • Designed by high performance boffin Clive Everest, the hull shape was created using computer generated sections resulting in mathematically perfect curves. That's why it looks so fair and fast.
  • Enormous speed potential is matched by excellent handling.
  • Vacuum bagged epoxy foam sandwich construction results in a hull that is fantastically strong, yet only weighs a stunning 52kg.
  • Helming from the wire is made easy by the purpose designed geometry of the cockpit.
  • High wing freeboard above the water gives a secure feel and all controls are easily reached.

  • Daggerboard for low drag efficiency.
  • Lifting rudder for easy launch and recovery.
  • Sophisticated GRP sandwich construction gives strong, light, high performance foils.


  • Carbon fibre mast gives a uniquely dynamic rig and the flextop delivers exceptional gust response.
  • Light weight and strong.
  • Fully battened mainsail to stabilise the shape and reduce flogging.
  • Scrim mylar for tear resistance.
  • Mast and sail work together to create a perfect rig. Pull the cunningham and watch the mast bend, the sail flatten and the upper leach open. Real power control.
  • High performance is attainable from the big rig in only 8 knots of wind.
  • Simple and highly effective reefing system reduces the sail area by nearly 20% and allows the boat speed to go on up as the wind increases. Removable mast extension - twin position shroud and trapeze settings - zip up sail foot. When reefed the sail head still reaches the top of the mast so maintains full tip response.
  • The reefing system not only assists speed in a breeze, but also makes mastering the RS600 within the reach of most competent sailors…and a lot of fun

Performance equalised racing

  • A simple performance equalisation system dramatically extends the competitive sailor weight range.
