BRITISH YACHTING AWARDS 202014/10/2020 17:59:32BRITISH YACHTING AWARDS 2020
presented by Sailing Today and Yachts and Yachting magazines
The RS Aero Class, our sailors and our events have come close to winning these awards a few times before. With an extra push this could be our year!! We need everyone’s vote to be successful together though. It takes just a few seconds to submit your vote.
We have three RS Aero related nominations this year;
- Youth Sailor of the Year - Tim Hire
- Event of the Year - RS Aero UK National Championships
- Clothing Innovation of the Year - Rooster 50N Bouyancy Aid
Tim has steadily come to form in the RS Aero Class. Already at just 18 years old he has an impressive list of achievements;
- Steve Nicholson Trophy, Northampton, 1st in 2019
- RS Aero 7 UK Youth Champs - 1st in 2019
- RS Aero 7 UK Nationals - 3rd (& 1st Youth) in both 2019 & 2020
- RS Aero 7 Europeans, Garda - 6th (& 1st Youth) in 2019
- RS Aero 9 UK Nationals - 2nd (& 1st Youth) in 2020
- Seldon SailJuice Winter Series - 4th (& 1st Youth) out of 656 entries in 2020
That is hugely impressive, but more important than race results is that Tim is an all round nice guy and a good sport. As an older & taller youth sailor he can be found helping the rest of the Youth Team launch when we have tough conditions like this year's Bloody Mary (pic) and various youth training weekends.
Tim is modest with his accomplishments in victory and generous with his complements in defeat - a splendid role model for all our younger youth sailors.
Tim deserves every RS Aero sailor's support worldwide, please take the time to vote now.
RS Aero UK National Championships
We were incredibly fortunate to be able to hold our premier UK RS Aero event in 2020 - the UK Nationals. Eastbourne Sovereign SC pulled out all the stops to overcome adversity and the small club with a passionately keen army of volunteers committed to making our Champs possible whilst other Classes were less fortunate. We are indebted to them for having those nice memories to savour through this winter. Here is our opportunity to collectively show our gratitude.
Please offer your support to our generous RS Aero Class supporters, ROOSTER
