Bought RS Aero 2791 and named it Pampaero.
RS Aero GBR 3538 Muttley.
Yorkshire Dales Sailing Club
Hopefully sailing soon.
Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, and learning to sail in the BIG breeze, many boats have very aggressive names to match the conditions. In addition, there have been some aggressive and iconic movies filmed with this great windy city in the background. One such movie is know for its famous quotes which are now strategically placed on my boat's port and starboard bow; "Go ahead, make my day", and my favorite, "Do you feel lucky, punk?" Yes, you guessed it, I named my Boat Dirty Harry and in a crossing situation my competitors will all get a chuckle; the port boat wondering how lucky they feel and can they pass ahead?
Finally, in real life: GER 2447 pocketrocket
Hope its ok to add a name here a few days before collecting from RS
Please add sail# GBR 2002 as name "Middle Eight"
GBR 1921 Peggy
1694: Fleur de Lis
I bought this boat with money left to me in my father's Will and it seemed appropriate to name her after the family crest.
GER 1720 - Wookiee
Because it's always better to...
GBR 1157 Marleckin. -Lancashire/ northern expression for messing about or play fighting. Hence "Stop marleckin' '' heard more than once growing up. Sailing out of Poole Yacht club; a long way from home, but it beats Rishton Reservoir!
GBR 1098 - Mercury.
Having bought my Aero a couple of years after my RS400, I was faced with 2 boats to name. I ummed and ahhed about it over the winter and finally settled on Mercury for the Aero and Gemini for the 400. Space geeks will no doubt get the reference, but for the rest of you Mercury was the name of the first American manned space program carrying a single astronaut, Gemini was the second program carrying, you've guessed it, 2 astronauts. If I ever get a sportsboat I'll have to name it Apollo and if I get a yacht I'll have to choose one of the shuttle names to stay consistent!
The Graphics/decals are on order from Grapefruit Graphics ask to speak to Kerry and mention my boat name. I tried to post the .pdf that they sent me but this form will not allow me to add it.
RS Aero sail No GBR 1150 is now named as 'Aer-We-gO-Agin' and I am awaiting the decals to add the name to her sides and stern. Is there going to be class association issued (Yearly) and a subscription?
