RS Aero UK Southern Championship - Warsash SC, Hampshire, 22/23 June
*** ONLINE ENTRY OPEN ABOVE! ***
Our 5th UK Southern Championship will be hosted by Warsash SC whose RS Aero fleet increased in size dramatically through 2018. It is exciting to visit them for their first RS Aero event. Incredibly, this weekend will mark the RS Aero Class' 5th anniversary since the first production RS Aero was launched!
Racing will be held on their Hill Head race area, on the central Solent to the east of the Hamble entrance, where they have held many Championships. This weekend has been selected for its neap tides.
This event will be a great warm up for the UK Nationals a month later and the Europeans at Garda, Italy, another month after that.
