Neil Pryde have issued 50 sets of equipment to competitors participating in the Olympic Regatta. The balance will be issued when those athletes arrive on site.
After two years of concentrated effort and attention to detail, we are pleased to report that no major issues have been encountered. The RS:X equipment has been subjected to the most intense scrutiny by the athletes who report that speed differences have been reduced to a minimum.
The sails look amazing with national flags taking up a full panel promising a strong visual impact during the OG.
Athletes have been out training on their supplied equipment and confirm that they are satisfied. In fact, one has been seen looping his RS:X as it has been unusually windy with no ill effects!
Neil Pryde have taken the utmost care to ensure that the hulls remained in a temperature controlled environment since leaving the factory. They were shipped and stored in an air-conditioned container to ensure that they were not subject to excessive temperatures.
