We have a 300 at our pond, as soon as it gets beyond a F3 it just lies on its side and he swims about till he gets tired and bored and then they take him back to the shore for an early shower. I am sure that they can be sailed but.....

Not by you anyway. I've seen them in all winds and sea and good sailors Mage them look easy. I was ok in one on flat water but I never really got the hang of the waves like some. That was cos of me, not the boat
Everything I say is my opinion, honest

Nice guy though, if itís the same chap!  A well sailed 300 is a sight to behold in windy weather mind.... they really are fantastic dinghies, if a little misunderstood.

Quite possibly been on here before but for those who find an RS300 challenging  - Raider.
And it also comes with a built in insulated box, for cold beverages, or quite possibly for keeping a between race pie warm. Why do Phantoms not have these?

That is 91kg hull weight though a 300 is 58 and a D Zero 43 so it's probably not a fair comparison (through that probably makes it a bit less frisky than a 300  Wink)

It is a heavy thing.
But you could have a case of beer, with ice, in the box and it would still weigh less than a Finn.

It would have to be a pretty small case of beer by the time you added the ice.....
