The RS200 is a 4m, double handed, hiking, racing dinghy. Designed in 1995 by Phil Morrison and manufactured by RS Sailing. It has a lightweight polyester GRP with Coremat hull construction.[3]

Performance and design[edit]

The RS200 utilises a single line asymmetric spinnaker system and low sheet loads on the sail controls. It can be sailed by weights of between 16 and 26 stone. The open transom allows the RS200 to virtually self drain after a capsize and a moulded self bailer removes any remaining water.
