RS Aero World Championship - Roundup

 
A whopping 206 RS Aeros - on only the RS Aero’s 4th birthday! - opened the RS Games at Weymouth

The RS Aero, alongside 170 RS Teras, opened the RS Games Regatta (4 to 25 August) at the Weymouth and Portland Sailing Association.

Having 50 international visitors was fantastic and the championship was blessed with having a steadily increasing wind through the week, providing some variety and ultimately a final climax!

Having over 200 RS Aeros on one race area required a detailed course to minimise traffic and retaine flexibility whilst our PRO Bob ‘Arky’ Wainwright stayed true to World Championship ideals without compromise.

RS Sailing’s support was fantastic from charters, equipment and servicing, to the wonderful atmosphere created by the RS Chillout Zone and main stage.

And you could be sailing in an Olympic class soon . . .Olympic Laser/Radial replacement bids revealed
