Grafham Grand Prix - Cambridgeshire, UK, 30th Dec 2018
 
A great days racing at the Grafham Grand Prix. Medium breezes, mild temperatures and dry!
The RS Aeros fielded 21 entries of the massive 200 boat mixed class fleet and the RS Aero 7s were the second largest class at the event with 11 entries. 
 
Slightly a victim of their own success with their large entry the RS Aero 7s were upgraded from the Slow to the Medium Fleet to keep the fleets an equal size. This left them the challenge of sharing a start line and race course with other classes with larger sails, trapezes and spinnakers which proved excellent practice in avoiding wind shadows and managing traffic traffic!
 
Tim Hire pipped Peter Barton in the  RS Aero 7s after a strong 13th in race 1.
Chris Larr took the RS Aero 9s.
The RS Aero 5s had several new sailors in the fleet and overall also had a hard time on PY against the other classes. Congrats to Jonathan Bailey for winning the Class and making the top half overall.
 
The RS Aero 7s are competing hard towards the Top Class accolade in the Selden SailJuice series where the top 3 sailors from each class in every race of every event of the series count. In addition to Tim and Peter, congrats to Karl Thorne, Joe Gallivan and Nick Neve who contributed with top 3 race placings from the RS Aero 7s.
