Performance and design
The RS Quba is a suitable dinghy for introducing newcomers to the sport of sailing, but is also a good boat to race. The cockpit is spacious but is also light enough to be handled by children. The RS Quba is quick to rig, easy to carry on the roof-rack and demands virtually no maintenance. The RS Quba is ideal to teach the youngsters, cruise around the bay or race with the more powerful Pro rig. The Sport mainsail has an easy reefing system and a jib can be added for sailing with two people. The hull is a highly durable Comptec PE3 construction system.
The RS Quba is a partner in the ISAF Connect to Sailing programme which seeks to revitalise grass roots participation in all categories of sailing outside elite activity and put sailing firmly back into a growth sport with a focus on youth.
