Thanks to Jorn Domres of the German RS Aero Class the 2021 RS Aero European Ranking is complete! We have an informal RS Aero European Ranking List with the aim to promote international solidarity and to encourage international visitors to events in other countries.

We now have fleets and championships in many European countries and each National Championship or International Open is considered a ranking event with the aim of one in each competing European nation. Weighting is added for World and European Championships and as appropriate, in a clever formula that Jorn has devised within

There were 10 events in 2021 consisting of National Championships and International Regattas at Switzerland, France, Germany, the European Championship at Malcesine Italy, Great Britain, Sweden, Italy, Netherlands, Ireland, Czech Republic. In total nine European countries participated.

This has had a slow startup through 2020 and 2021 due to the special pandemic situation and many RS Aero sailors restricted on travelling. Hopefully with less restriction in 2022 the ranking list will continue to grow much bigger in size again next year!A total of 55 out of 336 participants have a valid rating.Sailors who have competed one of the events are included in the 336 - not bad for a restricted season! For a valid rating sailors needed a m=9 value, which approximately relates to two events. See Jorn's calculation!

It was incredibly close at the top of the leader board with Francesca (ITA), Guilio (ITA) and Peter (GBR) all within a point of each other. There was a good spread of nations with six countries in the Top Ten and three ladies, Anouck (BEL), Vanja (SWE) and Francesca (ITA) made the top ten too. Jumping up into the Top Ten overall in the final couple of few events were Daragh (IRE) with his third at the Irish Champs and Anouck (BEL) with her third at the Dutch Champs.
