The Class Association is run by volunteer RS Elite sailors for RS Elite sailors and enjoys the close co-operation of RS Sailing, the manufacturer. The Association works hard for its membership to help promote the Class but more specifically:
Membership is open to all owners, helms, crews and supporters of the RS Elite – Full Membership works out at just £2.50 per month and even less for Associate Membership. Only Full and Family Membership confirms the right to vote at the AGM and EGMs. Only Full, Family or Associate members are eligble to helm and compete for points, places and prizes in Open Elite Class events such as the National Championship, Regional Championships, Cowes Week and Burnham Week. Funds are used to maintain the website, support the Nationals and other Open Regattas and generally support the RS Elite Class and its membership as appropriate.
Association members benefit from the RS Sailor Club scheme by enjoying various discounts with the RS Sailing Store plus
exclusive access to annual pre-order sail offer
