Dust off those extra layers and get set for another Wintery challenge...
The RS Aero UK Winter Series 2016/2017 will kick off straight after Christmas again at Yorkshire Dales’ Brass Monkey and comprise a selection of 10 challenging key events. Part of the RS Aero series shall be made up from events in the GJW Direct SailJuice Winter Series and from events in the South West Winter Series.
The ten venues will provide geographical spread and support to fleets. Sailors will count their 3 best event scores allowing most to compete in a couple of close by events and then travel once. Two pinnacle events are included again with at least one of the counted results to be either the popular RS Aero UK Winter Championships, held at The Oxford Blue again at Oxford 18th February or the UK Spring Championships hosted in 2017 by the new fleet at Island Barn Reservoir, West London on 25th March.
This winter the RS Aero UK Winter Series visits 3 new venues. In February the series includes the final event of the Blithfield Barrel series at Blithfield SC in the North Midlands. In March the fleet will sample the infamous Exmoor Beastie at the picturesque Wimbleball SC in Somerset for a full tour of Wimbleball Lake. Ultimately the UK Spring Championships will be the final showdown event of the series at Island Barn Reservoir SC.
