RS Sailing and Gingerboats Racing form partnership
RS Sailing has entered into a new partnership with British boat builder Gingerboats Racing Ltd. Gingerboats Racing will manufacture the RS200, an iconic double hander in the RS Sailing range and the UK dinghy racing scene.
With adrenaline packed racing and a lively social scene, the RS200 is one of the most popular two person sailboats of today, says RS Sailing. The company says it’s perfect for moderate weight teams, it’s a winner with mixed crews, young sailors and family teams at clubs, championships and on the RS Racing Circuit.
“We are excited to have partnered with RS Sailing, this is an opportunity not only to expand our one-design manufacturing but to also be a key part of one of the largest active racing classes in the UK,” says Phil Hodgkins, Gingerboats Racing director.
“RS Sailing’s desire to celebrate British manufacturing, sustainable practices and premium quality aligns with our own ambitions and we are looking forward to building the relationship with them”.
Established in 2011, Gingerboats Racing is based near Kewsick, Cumbria.
