AUS 3053 - Pharaoh

It has a ring to it. Previous gaelic name 'Siorc' was a tad obscure in Oz.

Just affixed the name to my new (to me) RS Aero GBR 3047. Had a laser for the last 19 years which never had a name, although it was called plenty of names in its time, I thought this boat deserved one.

GBR 3398 at Tata Steel Sailing Club in south Wales. After a bit of thought, eventually decided on Ambero after my grand-daughter Amber with a nod to the class by adding the 'O'.

Just purchased my RS Aero GBR 1459 in tip top condition, it's now going by the name of dangAEROus.  More the nickname of the owner than hopefully the boat, arising from a dead run in my Laser on our narrow river and catching the fleet in front with nowhere to go managing to slow down by mounting the rear of an RS200; my only mistake it was our Commodore's, plus a few more events according to some!

Hi Lesley,
No, I've never owned a Flying 11. I just liked the Italian word Andiamo (meaning Let's Go, or something similar). I do note that a lot of Italian restaurants use it too.
Cheers, Peter

GBR 3193 - Dennis the Menace
(Beano Comic)
 
As it was Storm Dennis who curtailed 3193's maiden voyage by postponing the RS Aero UK Winter Champs at the Oxford Blue on the 15th Feb 2020, one of several winter storms to curtail sailing in the UK last month.

After a few unfortunate Black Flag starts last year, 3193 is fitted with 'No Fear' bow eyes to help see down the start transit on crowded start lines.

Have acquired 1143, we came close to the edge travelling from Scotland to the Southampton area and back again to collect two boats (1143 and 2811), all within a 30 hour window including learning how to pack two Aeros onto an old Laser trailer that wasn't really suitable. Perhaps at my age I should know better so in homage to my love of Prog Rock, 'Close to the Edge' seems appropriate. GBR 1143 - 'Close to the Edge'

Oops! A spelling error in the name of GBR 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 AUS 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!

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.
 
Tom - GER 1874 Whakawhanaungatanga

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!

Greetings! With several thousands of flight hours as an aviator, I am naming my new RS 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 GBR 1610. Halifax Sailing Association Daytona Beach, Florida Cheers! Greg

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.

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.

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.

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!

AUS 1194 - Tijuana Taxi
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.

My wife already calls it the "other woman" so I figured a seal wife was appropriate.

After my gin and whisky swilling poker playing Nan, who encouraged these habits in her grandchildren from an early age as she deemed them as healthy pursuits. They must have been she only died a few years ago aged 96 and left me some money that I wanted to put towards a boat.

The Barbarian Graphics came from Wild Graphics in Lymington after a bit of a hunt around the web to find the best colour combination to match the original Aero graphics.
 
 Hope this helps. They are no connection to me.

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.

See their web site: - www.grapefruitgraphics.co.uk

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?

GBR 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
