A fleet of eight RS Aeros made it out at Santa Barbara's Goblin Regatta with visitors travelling from both the Los Angeles area and northern California. The Californian sun shone and a gentle breeze made for good racing.

Local sailor Jim Muir lifted the beautiful Declan Gloster Memorial Trophy, counting a string of 1st places.

The summer RS Aero season is all but over now in North America, except for in Florida where the US Winter Series is just about to start warming up with the first of five weekends on December 7-9th at Lake Monroe.
