RS700 End of Season Survey 2017
Welcome to the RS700 End of Season Survey 2017! Please take a few minutes to complete the following survey to enable the Class Association to understand the size, shape and desires of the RS700 sailors; so that we can steer the fleet in the right direction. All RS700 owners (not just Class Association members) are encouraged to complete the survey and I will publish the results in early February 2018. I'd also like to encourage all international RS700 sailors to complete the survey to ensure that the Class Association understands the needs of those based outside the UK. The survey is anonymous and I'll protect the identity of people in the results - so please be honest and open with your feedback!

This year has seen the introduction of a new generation of RS700 hull which addresses most of the commonly reported shortfalls in the hull structural strength and resiliance. Are there any other design or quality issues with the boat that you would like to bring to the attention of the RS700 Builders Representative?
Over the last few years there have been a number of modifications to the boat, such as increasing the Kicker and Forestay Tensioner ratios, and the new style rudder stock. Later this year, Class Association members will be asked to vote on whether they are happy to adopt the RS Aero Style Daggerboard. In addition, across the class there are a number of rigging variations (or 'Bimbles') that could be seen as compromising the 'One-Design' nature of the class. What is your view on this:
There is too much change being made to the boat by the Builder which is compromising the 'one design' principles.
I'm content with some minor change to the boat over time to increase reliability and keep the boat feeling modern.
There is too much variation in the way that sailors rig their boats which needs tighter control.
I'm content with a variation of rigging styles and 'Bimbles' across the class.
Are there any RS700 class rule issues which you would like investigating?
Are you satisfied with the RS700 Class Association Website?
Are you aware of the RS700 Sailors Facebook Group?
