Champions ProfileJerry Wales
I am now too old and senile to remember much about my sailing past, in fact much about yesterday is challenging. I can remember that I am an admirer of what the folk at RS have done over the last 20 years (despite the 20 years of awesome logo) and a big fan of the RS700. It may appear that the RS700 is initially a difficult boat to sail (like others in its category) but swear obedience to a few basic golden rules and it becomes remarkably easy to sail (unlike others in its category) both technically and thankfully for us old blokes, physically, and there lies the reason why I am still sailing and enjoying it.
I feel blessed to have been able to move down to Cornwall three years ago. Restronguet/Windsport is a glorious place to sail from. You are welcome to come and join the enthusiastic group of RS 700 sailors down here, if only for a few days, if the opportunity arises.
My Winning Tip
Spend as much time as you can away from the club race course to learn and apply the basics. If I could just remember what those were I would happily tell you. Come to as many RS700 events as you can and sail as if you were still practising. Stick to the basics, ignore other boats and read the sailing instructions.
