We are pleased to announce the launch of the RS:Convertible Class.
RS:Convertible is a multigenerational one-design wind foiling class featuring two divisions: the RS:X Convertible and the RS:One Convertible. Both divisions are capable of racing in two modes (foil and fin) with the same board and rigs.
The RS:X Convertible is the Elite Division featuring an ultimate convertible performance pack with the latest technologies available in the industry: full carbon board, foil and fin, and a 7.8 sail for men or 7.0 for the women.
The RS:One Convertible is the Universal Division coming from the same pedigree as the RS:X Convertible but with more accessible features such as a carbon/glass board, aluminium foil, G10 fin, and a 7.8 rig for men, 7.0 for the women or youth boys, and 6.3 for youth girls (U18).
Both divisions will race using the same format, in two different "modes", depending on the conditions and selected by the PRO (Principal Race Officer). Foiling mode (1) will be used in non-planing and marginal conditions while the fin mode (2) will be selected in full planing conditions.
We are also excited to announce the first two international wind foiling events, with the RS:One Convertible Europeans and RS:X World Convertible Championships to be held this year in France and Azores, respectively. Please check the Class website
for more information.
