RS Aero Scottish Circuit 2023
Following significant growth in ownership of the RS Aero in Scotland over the last 12 months and interest from new and existing owners next season will see the inaugural RS Aero Scottish Circuit.
Isabelle Martin of the Dalgety Bay RS Aero fleet explains; “Initially, three weekend events at fabulous locations are planned and this will include a Scottish Nationals. The three clubs hosting the RS Aero are East Lothian Yacht Club, Loch Lomond Sailing Club and Dalgety Bay Sailing Club. Each is including the RS Aeros within their regattas, which will provide the Class with interesting and sociable meetings. Two of the three events will be needed to qualify for a Circuit result.”
Recently appointed RS dealer in Scotland, Sailingfast, is helping support events and grow the fleet with new and used boat sales. 2023 would be a great year to join the fleet in Scotland with many clubs seeing significant numbers of RS Aeros appearing. Duncan Hepplewhite of Sailingfast enthused; “The Sailingfast team are delighted to support RS Aero fleet in Scotland. The inaugural Scottish Circuit is a very exciting opportunity for RS Aero sailors and will help galvanise the growing fleet.”
The Class’ building in Scotland is making for some great competition. With the RS Aero 5 & 7 UK Nationals heading north to Scotland in 2024 (East Lothian Yacht Club) this is a great time to get into RS Aero racing in Scotland, to join the fun and with a goal to progress towards!
