The cost is tiny compared to your benefits, working out at just £3.75 per month for Full Membership, £3 per month for Club Membership or £2.08 per month for Youth Membership
By taking out International Class Association membership for one class, you will have reciprocal membership to the RS100, RS200, RS300, RS400, RS600, RS700, RS800, RS Vareo International and International RS500 Class Associations
One event membership is available for all events except National and major championships, for use by those borrowing a boat, intending to only sail in one RS Class Association event etc. Click here.
The RS Classes keep a list of coaches available to run one day or weekend training sessions. Costs depend on the experience of the coach & location of the session.
The ideal is for a club to provide a venue & resources & agree a date. Your RS class secretary can then help find an appropriate coach. Coaches can charge between £80 & £250 per day.
For the current list of coaches who have registered as available for RS coaching, please contact the membership secretary
Any coaching sessions coming up will be shown in the events calendar.
If you require general help with getting started in your RS boat please contact your Class Chair or Secretary and we will aim to put you in touch with a coach or experienced sailor who will be able to help you.
Book Fleet Coaching at Your Club
If you want to book a coaching event at your cub, for one or more RS classes, we can help with that. Contact your Class Secretary (see 'Contacts') to find out how to book a coach ad to get started - it's a great way to get your Club Racers together and enjoying their boat.
