RS:One: congrats NeilPryde

The International Sailing Federation (ISAF) council has granted the class status to the RS:One by NeilPryde, at the annual meeting held in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The RS:One is the new, exciting, ISAF one-design class. One sail, one board - everyone competing on the same equipment. It's the rider that makes the difference.

The RS:One comes from the same racing pedigree as the Olympic RS:X and the NeilPryde RS:Racing. This universal ISAF one-design class allows male and female racers of all ages to compete on the same equipment.

RS:One is a fantastic opportunity for sailing and yachting clubs and federations to organize races and attract newcomers - bringing back the regatta fans to the sport.

This recognition is a great step forward for the worldwide class growth and will see the first RS:One world champions, in the end of 2012.

Origami is the ancient art of paper folding. Kites were probably invented in China around 500 BC. Let's blend both crafts and make a simple, high-flying Origami kite.
