Following the huge interest received at the 2015 Southampton Boat Show, BYD are extending the test sail period to allow people to come and see what the new boat is made of. Interest was received from a wide demographic of sailors.
The ease of using the boat makes it appealing for anyone who is either interested in solo training to families wanting a weekend getaway boat, and newbies to the sport. The RTC-22 provides a tamed platform to learn and practice or enjoy sailing on.
After sailing it we found it to be exhilarating to sail with the RTC-22 being so responsive to the environment and conditions around. accelerating in the smallest amount of puff as can be seen from the video below showing extremely light airs of around 2 knots. However as wind increased to 12-15 knots the boat reached around 6.5 knots upwind and around 7.5 to 8 knots on a beam reach. This little trailer sailor packs in a lot of space and follows our BYD pedigree in terms of design and sail ability
The first RTC-22 proto version is for sale for a modest price of £20,990.00, this price includes everything you need to get out on the water and sailing straight away. If you would like to book a test sail please contact us and email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
