The RS Aero Class have enjoyed many fabulous events, great racing, camaraderie and fun both locally and internationally throughout 2015, our first full season. The momentum behind the class is a joy and continues to roll on into 2016, building on the successes of 2015 with several new events and initiatives planned.
As a Class we owe a gigantic THANK YOU to our great sponsors and supporters far and wide to whom we are very grateful. Those contributions helped our incredible season become a reality.
