RS Aero UK Winter Series 2018/19 03/12/2018 11:15:32RS Aero UK Winter Series 2018/19
Winter is here in the UK and it is time to layer up and get set for the annual winter classics!
The RS Aero UK Winter Series again consists of 10 events with just the best 3 events to count. We have a great spread of both regions and dates from December through to March, allowing sailors the chance to qualify without too many winter miles.
Two excellent events at Highcliffe and Frensham and are new to the series. We return this season to the Bowmoor Bubble and Rutland's Tiger Trophy again. Five of the ever popular Selden SailJuice Winter Series events are included in our RS Aero series with a wonderful variety of format and racing challenges across the series.
The series kicked off on 1st December at the Bowmoor Bubble, the only event on the series exclusively for RS Aeros. With an impressive 30 RS Aeros entered at Bowmoor we could be in for a big series this year!
The 10 events for the RS Aero UK Winter Series 2018/19 are…
1 Dec - Bowmoor Bubble, Gloucestershire
27 Dec - Brass Monkey, Yorkshire Dales
30 Dec - Grafham Grand Prix, Cambridgeshire
12 Jan - Bloody Mary, Queen Mary, West London
20 Jan - Highcliffe Icicle (#2), Christchurch Harbour, Dorset
26 Jan - Steve Nicholson Trophy, Northampton
2/3 Feb - Tiger Trophy, Rutland
16 Feb - Oxford Blue, RS Aero Winter Champs
10 Mar - Frensham Frenzy, Surrey
16 Mar - Starcross Steamer, Devon
RS Aeros will all be scored together on one results sheet, so you have flexibility to choose your rig at each event - promoting enjoyment, participation and safety too. When split into fleets the proportional position in your fleet relative to the total number of RS Aeros entered will count towards the series.
We have strived to avoid clashes with the Youth Winter Training series with just one date clash.
