from the
RS Aero European Championships, Malcesine, Garda, Italy, August 2019

Thanks to the support from Rooster, Selden, RS Sailing and RS Sailing Italia daily awards ceremonies were held each day awarding achievements throughout the fleet with a fantastic spread of prizes and the Rooster podium bibs were redistributed ready for the next day's racing.

As is customary, the winners of the three RS Aero fleets each day generously shared their Top-Tips of what had worked well for them on the race course that day. Fortunately RS Sailing Media was there to capture it on video afterwards for everyone to benefit!

RS Aero 7 - Craig Williamson GBR
"Protect the left!"
RS Aero 9 - Chris Larr GBR
"Use more kicker for pointing in the breeze, downhaul when overpowered, but leave some belly low down"
