Oops! A spelling error in the name of #1508. It should read “Wahine”, not “Wahini” and is pronounced “Wah-hee-nay”, meaning Hawaiian female (thanks to Marc Jacobi for his explanation and background in Hawaii itself.) The error was from spelling it as I heard it spoken by a Sydneysider 😱!

Any chance of a correction, Peter? Advance apologies to a very busy man . . .

My Aero is named "Sul Sea" (hence my screen name) which is a play on the musical instruction "Sul C" which means (in viola terms, an instrument I play occasionally) to play the given section of music on the C string. "Sul" means "on the" in italian, so the name sort of means "play on the sea" which I thought was pretty nice and is kind of the intention of me getting a boat.
I sail (not very competently yet) out of Hampton Sailing Club in Victoria,Australia with sail number 2729

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? 

Cheers!
Craig Perez, Aero 1733

Never named my boats before but since I have too much time in retirement (ex chemistry teacher) I gave GBR 2155 some thought and came up with 8-Methyl-N-vanillyl-trans-6-nonenamide.
However this isnt a very catchy boat name so how about the common name of this stuff, Capsaicin.
Its hot stuff - the active ingredient in chillies!

My NED 1869 is pink (tnx to Christer Bath), because i usually sail the (9) and the orange was already taken. A pink vehicle? Maybe it is my age, but the first one that comes to my mind is the "FAB1": the six wheeled car from Thunderbirds. Lady Penelope also has a boat: the "FAB2" and -not well known- also a four-person helijet: the "FAB3". Calling my Aero "FAB4" was of course out of the question for an obvious reason. So that's why my boat is the "FAB5"

Hi Peter,
My boat with sail number NED 1925  will be named as: "FlyingAero". It is a kind of tribute to the Flying Arrow a very popular open sail boat in the Netherlands. The production of this boat was stopped in 1990 due to the succes of  upcoming popularity of the sailing board and the catamaran.

Hello,
my no. 1874 aero 7 shares  his name with our other ships.
The name is "whakawhanaungatanga" which has it's roots in the maori language and means teamwork or cooperation between people of different age. For us it the result of a long search for a name. Also it is always nice to see how people try to get the letters together to the name, specially in the german language.
 Have a nice sailing winter, in Berlin all boats are under cover and waiting for spring.

GBR 1508: "Wahini".  Memories of  Bob Killick, Andrew Buckland and Warwick Rooklyn commentating on 16’ Skiff Racing from Manly Yacht Club NSW. They referred to attractive, bikinied young ladies on paddle boards as “Wahinies”. I think the term has a Hawaiian origin and might refer to female surfers there. Perhaps Marc Jacobi would know?

2000 - V-Jet

The first aircraft that I remember flying on. Boeing 707 V-Jets were Qantas's main longhaul aircraft in the 1960s before the 747s came along. QF named theirs V-Jet and put it on their tails with the flying kangaroo. V was for Vannus, Latin for fan, as Qantas were the first to fit fan jets to their 707s. The more powerful engines were needed for the long distances that Qantas operated. They were the hot-rods of the skies in their day!

Aerostar1610
Posts: 6
Greetings!

With several thousands of flight hours as an aviator, I am naming my new Aero 9&7 "Aerostar" after a very sleek and fast six place twin aircraft produced and very popular here in the US that has always been much sought after. Remarkably quick and agile, the Aerostar was also very efficient in fulfilling its mission of moving its occupants rapidly from place to place.

I have expectations that my Aero will also "deliver the goods" on speed and agility and be deserving of the description of being a "Star!" Thus, the identity "Aerostar" seems a fitting name to bestow on Sail number 1610.

Cheers! 😎

Aero 1594 has been sailed with much delight by me since July this year. Prior to that I sailed a Lightning368 for 5 years that I loved and thought I would never be parted from. However following an exceptionally windy week in Minorca with some fantastic coaching from Jamie & George I came home and ordered my Aero within a week; swiftly sold my Lightning368 - The Lady Archer, and so when it came to names  "Holiday Romance" seemed entirely aptt!!  Six months and still going strong!! I hope to make to Yorkshire Dales as many of the other venues are to far South for me, fantastic boat and another happy customer.

Chris, from South Australia, has named his boat AUS 1682  'Yes!' in recognition of his delight after first sailing an Aero; "Yes! This is the boat I have been waiting for all my life".

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.

CHERISHED NAMES
Cherished RS Aero names continue to roll in and we have just reached 100!

The 'Cherished Names' register is available HERE, helping owners avoid accidental repetition. There are some imaginative ones, do take a look!

To add to that list post the name of your Aero on this Forum thread [Register to the website in the pink box in order to post to the Forum]. Minimum info is sail number and boat name (but feel free to tell the story if there is one!). You could also post a pic if you have a nice graphic or photo. Periodically I shall update the list from the Forum.

So let your imagination go and post up those names - don't leave your beloved RS Aero nameless!

AUS 1189 has been named 'Kelpie'. After spending some quality time with my boat, camped on the shores of Green Lake (Horsham Victoria. AUS), in the evening sun and with a glorious 10 to 15 knot breeze from the south west, having invoked the Gods and Spirits of the Seas, Winds, Rivers & Lakes, I have named her 'Kelpie'.
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kelpie I first learnt of the Water Horse when writing a paper in my 20s about the 'Undine' myth. And then there was the OK that I renamed 'Lorelei", great name for a big white boat. And my first dog was a much loved kelpie cross, quick and nimble.

AUS 1203 - Aerosprey.  I'm sailing at Safety Bay south of Perth, Western Australia. The name is a take on Osprey, a kind of sea eagle in our part of the world). So I hope Aerosprey will "fly" over the water!  Am still trying to decide what sailing club to join and whether to compete at Sail Fremantle in October.

USA 1250 - Feats of Strength
 
Of course from Seinfeld.  I thought of Serenity Now and Airing of Grievances but they were better for multi-person crews. For a 56 year old who started single hander sailing six years ago in a Laser and with a goal of mastering sailing from zero to thirty knots, Feats of Strength seemed more appropriate.

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!

This is the sixth Tijuana since 1981,the fifth Tijuana Taxi. Living in Victoria on the border with New South Wales, we Victorians were often referred to as Mexicans during the 70'S, so Tijuana seemed appropriate, dad was always partial to Herb Albert so the name of one of his best known tracks fitted best.

1212    -      Aeromancer

Probably the most useful of all the mancing disciplines, Aeromancers specialize in bending the air and the wind to their will. Using magic, Aeromancers can bring hurricane force winds to bear on the battlefield. They are, however, mostly peaceful. The people who follow this discipline are often active and social, using a small cloud of air to float them around from place to place.

You know, those mythical creatures that nibble the ropes that break half way through a race, steal your bung, catch hold of your centreboard when you're attempting to sneak over a sandbank and slow you down when you can't work out the reason why everyone else is going faster than you. Be nice to them and they'll do it to someone else instead.

Many new RS Aero owners are coming up with some fine imaginative names for their pride and joys. Simon Ward of Lymington had the great idea of forming a ‘name register’ so that names were not repeated. I suggest that everyone posts the names of their Aeros as a reply to this thread - minimum info is sail number and boat name (but feel free to tell the story if there is one!). You could also post a pic here if you have a nice graphic.

Periodically I shall update a concise list and save it to the documents page of this site.
So let your imagination go and post up those names!
[Please keep it clean-ish, there are minors here!]
Happy Sailing,
Peter
