The RS200 Fleet
The RS200 is a high-performance doublehanded asymmetric racing dinghy that is suitable for all ages form 12-60+ and is indeed sailed by a broad range of ages at Queen Mary Sailing Club.
Despite COVID, fleet numbers are increasing steadily at Queen Mary Sailing Club and we are proud to have a very competitive racing fleet. We also have new sailors to the fleet keen to learn from others within our very friendly group. The group is always willing to impart knowledge and advice from what to look for when buying a second-hand boat to how to set up the boat or make it go faster! Training sessions are organised in house and also with outside coaches.
Fleet Captain: Julie Harrison on email@example.com

Saturday 5th June 2021
Adam Bowers will be coming to the club for a day of excellent coaching in RS200s for all abilities. Adam is a world-class coach with a wealth of knowledge and experience and this will be a day not to be missed. There will be a charge for the day which will be bookable online (see details below). More to follow on this soon, but make sure you keep the date free in your diary!
RS200 Rooster National Tour and SEAS Open Meeting 31st July and 1st August 2021 at Queen Mary Sailing Club
Online entry is now open for this Open Meeting. If you can only join us for Saturday, then that is the SEAS event; if you are able to race on both days, your results on Saturday will count for the SEAS event and overall for the Rooster Tour event. It would be great to have a really big QMSC turnout for the event!
QM RS200 Series
One Sunday each month, RS200 Series results are extracted from the Sunday race results to create our very own RS200 Series. The idea is that if you only have 1 Sunday a month to race (but we really hope it is every Sunday), then make it these dates. In this way we can focus on the specific dates to ensure a large turnout and lots of competition.
The RS200 2021 Series dates are:
Sunday 16th May
Sunday 20th June
Sunday 11th July
Sunday 8th August
Sunday 19th September
Sunday 10th October
Communication within QM RS200 fleet is done via our RS200 members' email group. In addition, we also have a WhatsApp group where advice and banter are shared more informally and there is also a QM RS200 Facebook Group.
Any questions, please contact Julie Harrison.
