The new RS Aero Winter Training season kicks of this weekend at Oxford 19/20 Nov and then Hayling Island on 3/4 Dec alongside the RS Tera squad. This will provide all inclusive Top Level Coaching across the whole range of sailors from Youths and Aero newbies right through to those preparing for next year's World Championships in France. Whilst focused on Youths, all are welcome - Under 22s, Parents of sailors, local sailors and all RS Aero sailors generally!

Coaches

The Class have signed up key top quality coaches to bring on our Youths and progress the UK class as a whole. The addition input will allow for the coaches to also be in their RS Aeros to provide demonstration and sparing - which can often be more beneficial than yelling from a coach boat! The coaches are:

  • SHAUN PRIESTLEY - World Class International Coach
  • HANNAH SNELLGROVE - 3 times Laser Radial UK National Champion
  • CHLOE MARTIN - Laser Radial Europeans Bronze Medalist
  • PETER BARTON - RS Aero UK (9) and USA (7) National Champion

  • BEN ROLFE - 2nd place RS Aero 9 European Champs, representing RS providing charter boats, support and coaching assistance.

To book Charter RS Aeros contact Ben Rolfe at . 75% of the charter fee will be discounted off the price of a new boat for those who go on to buy.
