OYC managed to organise nice races on water for the RS Aeros alongside the RS Teras and RS Vareos. The venue is famous more for its beautiful views of Prague than perfect conditions for racing! They took care of us even on the shore outside the racing time with snacks and the wonderful grill.

Petr Bryx convincingly took the PY win in his RS Aero 9 with two firsts and a second. Sylvia Mrazova stayed close enough in her RS Aero 5 to score a consistent 2,3,3 series to take second overall. In their RS Aero 7s Petr Prokysek and Jan Hruby won a race each to take third and fourth overall respectively.

On Sunday only RS Tera sailed with a very weak (Translation = NO) wind and the results remained unchanged. It was a nice day by the river with friends!

Big thanks to OYC and the organising Marina Prague. The whole team of people from the club helped racers get our boats on water and cared for all comfort, program and background.

Next up for the RS Aeros in the Czech Republic is this weekend's event at Jachtklub Machova Jezera. Next month the Czech RS Aeros are set to make the trip southwards to the RS Aero International Regatta at Lago Maggiore, Italy, in preparation for the big one - the RS Aero European Championships at Lake Garda in August.

Full details on all RS Aero Events across mainland Europe can be found on the RS Aero Events List.
