The RS Quba is a suitable dinghy for introducing newcomers to the sport of sailing, but is also a good boat to race. The cockpit is spacious but is also light enough to be handled by children. The RS Quba is quick to rig, easy to carry on the roof-rack and demands virtually no maintenance. The RS Quba is ideal to teach the youngsters, cruise around the bay or race with the more powerful Pro rig. The Sport mainsail has an easy reefing system and a jib can be added for sailing with two people. The hull is a highly durable Comptec PE3 construction system.
The RS Q’BA Review: Verdict
RS’s Q’ba seems to clearly line up against Laser’s Pico, the ubiquitous rotomoulded beginner boat for one adult or two children, as favoured by sailing schools and holiday operators far and wide. The Q’ba provides a similar package, enhanced by better sailing performance, slicker features and a wider range of use, particularly if you add the optional Pro sail. What’s more, the Q’ba is a good-looking boat, which is fun to sail and should be hassle-free to own with minimal maintenance required. If that suits your lifestyle, the Q’ba could provide the solution to some totally modern sailing.
Even though no one had come close to capsizing the Q’ba during our test day in Force 3-4 winds, it is designed for beginners so it will happen. Hannah was volunteered to flip the Q’ba on its side and had no trouble flipping it back up again in double quick time. The low freeboard made it easy for her to scramble over the side, while the boat stayed stable.
Six years after the Feva was launched, RS seem to have learnt how to make a really attractive rotomoulded boat. The Q’ba drew appreciative comments from club members, as we trundled through the dinghy park and down to the beach. All the bits you need to go sailing will fit inside the cockpit, including the boom which holds up the cover when you leave the boat. This is a neat feature, ensuring that rain will fall off the sides. The mast is a two-part aluminium tube, but unlike rivals such as the Pico it’s fitted with a luff groove for the mainsail. This means that the mast can stay up whenever you raise or lower the sail. You never have to lift the mast with the sail attached, which can be very difficult for children, which means the kids can be in complete control.
On this occasion, our ‘mum’ took control of rigging. Amanda found it a slight challenge to join the mast sections together — beware of sand — but had no problem lifting the mast and dropping the foot into the deck where a mast gate locks it in position.
Our test boat came not only with the optional jib kit which is simply attached at tack and head, but also the Mylar Pro sail. With no battens, the standard Dacron mainsail (blue and white radial stripes) was a doddle to rig. Just pull it up the luff groove with the halyard and attach the clew to the adjustable outhaul on the end of the boom. Everything is easy to figure and well sorted — we particularly liked the neat way you can tuck halyard ends into a Velcro pocket, which is part of the mainsail.
