The German RS Aero Challenge series has continued to go from strength to strength in 2018 and is now complemented with the growing Dutch circuit and the ability of both countries to support each other's events across the border.

A total of 47 German sailors entered the RS Aero Challenge this year, compared to 35 last year. Thirteen regattas were held (ten in Germany, plus one each in GBR, NED & ITA) and eight event ratings were required to qualify. 13 sailors attended the eight events to qualify, an increase on eight from the previous year. The most popular National Regatta was at Haltern am See (SCPS) with 17 participants.

The highlight of the season was certainly the RS Aero World Championship in Weymouth, UK with 206 RS Aeros from 16 countries competing. Congratulations especially to Juliane Barthel on her RS Aero 7 Ladies' world title, the first Lady in the 103 boat RS Aero 7 fleet at Weymouth.

Juliane is also the new winner of the RS Aero Challenge 2018. Second this time is Marcus Walther, followed by Holger Techen in third place.

A total of 14 Youth sailors participated in competitions of our RS Aero Challenge, and the best Youth this year is Jannis Meyer.

All four winners will be honoured at Boot in Dusseldorf; the date for the ceremony will be announced.
