2019 saw another successful Thames Valley Mini Series 2019 with exactly 100 RS Aero sailors taking part in at least one of the five events stretching from London to Swindon.

The Series is scored on one 'all Aeros' results sheet. As the Class grows three of the five events have now evolved to Class racing this year. This provides great one design Class racing whilst the series still enjoys the overall score sheet and sailors benefit from the ability to choose rigs at each event as appropriate, encouraging enjoyment and thus participation.

The only sailor to win two events was super quick Dave Lynall in winning the RS Aero 9 fleets at both Burghfield and Bowmoor. Top Lady and Youth Lady was Josie Meredith who won the RS Aero 5 fleet at Burghfield, closely followed by Abbey Hire, 2nd Youth Lady overall. The Masters saw a close battle between Gareth Griffiths and Chris Jones, with Gareth coming out on top in 3rd overall. Tim Hire was top Youth and 2nd overall after winning the RS Aero 7 fleet on the legendary day that the barbed tail of Hurricane Hannah ravaged Island Barn, followed up with a 2nd in the RS Aero 9s at Bowmoor. In top spot was Peter Barton with one win at Papercourt and a couple of 2nds at Island Barn and Burghfield.

Thanks to all the host clubs! The five events of the 2019 Thames Valley Mini Series were;

  • Broadwater SC Sustainability Open 1 - Middlesex, March
  • RS Aero UK Spring Championship - Island Barn RSC, Surrey, April
  • Burghfield SC Sustainability Open 2 - Berkshire, May
  • Papercourt SC - Surrey, Sept
  • The Bowmoor Bubble - Bowmoor SC, Gloucestershire, Nov
