INTRODUCING – THE RS AERO 6...17/05/2019 16:58:49INTRODUCING – THE RS AERO 6...
The RS Aero 6 has been discussed and sought by those who feel they too often fall in between the RS Aero 5 and RS Aero 7 rig sizes. Two and a half years ago an RS Aero 6 was initially developed. At that time the Class felt we were too young to be further split by a 4th rig.
RS Sailing are now in the process of further refining an RS Aero 6 rig in anticipation of the World Sailing decision. Should the RS Aero be successful in becoming the Women's Olympic Single-Handed Dinghy then further consultation between RS Sailing and World Sailing is likely to agree that the size of the refined RS Aero 6 is the best fit for the suggested requirement.
Whether the RS Aero 6 becomes Olympic equipment or not, the Class is able to contemplate whether to and how to best adopt it into our Class organised racing. We have the ability to revisit the earlier decision and work out the best way forwards, should we choose to proceed.
This week the UK Class Committee have approved limited testing of the RS Aero 6 at permitted Class events alongside the RS Aero 7 fleet in order to assist the optimal development, show the rig and promote the discussion within the Class. The new rig will be available to view at Lymington this weekend.
