Christer Båth – aged 80 – hands over the reins

At the age of 80, Christer Båth has handed over the reins of RS Sailing Sweden to new owners Björn Wärnberg and Magnus Robertsson.

Together, with their business team – all of which are sailors – they will work to continue to develop RS in Sweden.

Christer is one of RS Sailing’s longest-serving national dealers and will continue his support as an ambassador for RS Sailing Sweden. He still races his RS Aero and believes ‘sailing keeps you young longer’.

The company will remain on the west coast of Sweden but has relocated from Gothenburg to the coastal village of Ljungskile with the new location close to the sea, enabling test sailing and fun events for existing and future customers.

Wonderful collaboration

The company will supply and distribute the range of RS boats.

RS Sailing Sweden will also continue to work closely with RS Class Associations to support regattas, both in Sweden and also worldwide events.

“We thank Christer Båth for his wonderful collaboration in the past years,” said Susanne Borgenstierna, Swedish RS Class Association, RS Förbundet. “We hope to continue seeing Christer’s tough resistance out on the water.

“We look forward to new collaboration with Björn Wärnberg and Magnus Robertsson’s team for the coming years.”

Lydia Spencer Smith, RS Sweden marketing, added: “When RS sailors meet to race, it’s so much more than the regatta that is in focus. The socialising with good friends from all over the world is what makes sailors want to come back year after year. “That RS feeling is at the centre of everything we try to create with sailing.”
