Ocean Elements is the first Beach Club holiday company to get the all-new RS Aero in for guests to try!

The RS Aero is creating hot news in the sailing community at the moment due to its revolutionary light-weight hull and rig which is set to be a game-changer for the world of dinghy sailing and design. A lighter hull means the boat is both an exciting and easy to handle dinghy. It has an easy-to-manage rig and forgiving hull shape which promises fast and fun rides for all levels of sailor (not just the experts) which is why this boat is so in demand!

The team at RS helped Ocean Elements to beat the queue and secure a couple of boats early late July to our Nidri Beach Club. Boat number 2 will be tested here in the UK and there is talk of a fleet of Aero's to follow next year at Ocean Elements' two specialist sailing centres: Nidri and Porto Heli.

With a hull weighing in at just 30kg and 46kg, this boat offers a power-to-weight ratio that ventures more towards a windsurf board! Indeed sailing the boat itself feels more like you are a part of it, rather than riding in it!
