Wow, what a season! The RS Aero UK Southern Circuit continued to go from strength to strength in its fifth season with a huge entry of 232 RS Aeros taking part in at least one event.

We started at the Spring Champs at Island Barn in April with Hurricane Hannah raging and a good fleet of RS Aero 5s and RS Aero 7s getting around in good shape. An equally testing weekend in May followed with the challenge of the Solent tides at Lymington.

The RS Aero Class' celebrated its fifth birthday at the Warsash Southern Champs in June with a new record Class entry for a weekend event of 71. After the summer's major Championships the Circuit re-convened at Avon SC in September for the annual River Champs with 22 RS Aeros enjoying the challenge of river racing on the 60m wide river Severn.

Warsash's short standing record was then beaten at the Rutland RS Aero Inlands in October with a whopping 79 entries! We finished up at Draycote with our largest End of Season Champs yet, with 60 RS Aeros on a chilly weekend in November.

Congratulations to the winners, those who qualified and to everyone who took part! Another excellent UK Southern Circuit is near ready to be launched for 2020, visiting some new venues and also some old favourites. Check out the nearly-complete 2020 UK Event List
