RS Aero European Championship at Weymouth & Portland Sailing Academy - Overall

by RS Aero International Class Association 9 Aug 09:26 BST 1-5 August 2022

A few dusty heads turned up on Friday morning after revelling the night away to the tunes of DJ Mark Covell playing on the RS Sailing hub main stage! Day 5 provided a Grande Finale to the Championship with titles hotly contested over the last two races.

Similar to the previous day, racing was out in Weymouth Bay with a 8-12kn north westerly off the shore but this time it was hotter and the shifts and wind variance were more pronounced. The race course was thick with opportunities and sailors had to make careful judgements on their positioning and decision making.

In the RS Aero 5s race wins went to David Peaty (GBR) and then to Lijia Xu (CHN) in the final race of the series. At the top of the scoreboard Chloe George (GBR) did enough to bring home the title. The chasing pack narrowed the gap with Roscoe Martin (GBR) in second and Tom Ahlheid (GBR) in third and first Youth (U19). First Youth Female was Abby Hire (GBR), first Junior (U16) was Philip Sahl-Anderson (DEN) and first Junior Female Aimee Bulkes (URU).

In the RS Aero 6s a 1,3 was enough for Chris Hatton (GBR) to secure his title. Ants Haavel (EST) took the silver and Chris Rust (GBR) bronze. Luca Mitchell (GBR) took fourth and top Youth, Abigail Larr (GBR), first Lady, Andy Hill (GBR) first Master (O55), Catherine Hemsley (GBR) first Lady Master and Nick Scully (GBR) first Grand Master (O65).

Martis Pajarskas (LTU) took the title in the RS Aero 7s with a win in the first race. It was even in the race for silver going into the last race and a second place gave it to Tim Hire (GBR) with recently crowned Youth World champion Vejas Strelciunas (LTU) in third. First Lady was Anya Haji-Michael (GBR) in twelfth, first Youth was Blake Tudor (GBR), first Master Steve Norbury (GBR) and first Grand Master Michael Baldwin (GBR).

The RS Aero 9s' enthusiasm got the better of them on the first start of the day with five boats over and only a few returning. The title was already secured by Peter Barton (GBR). Chris Larr (GBR) came back from his OCS to take the silver with a final race win with Ben Charnley (GBR) taking bronze. First Master was Robbie Lawson (GBR) and first Grand Master Andy Warren (GBR).

Many thanks to all the volunteers and staff who made the RS Games and the two RS Aero Championships all possible. Over 200 RS Aero entries over the two weeks representing 15 nations all had a fantastic time with great racing in a nice mix of conditions and a fun time both ashore and afloat.

Thanks to all the supporters of the RS Games; RS Sailing, Rooster, Selden, Harken, Noble Marine, Kingfisher Yacht Ropes, LifeJacket Skin Protection, Spinlock, Fernhurst Books, Hyde Sails, MarkSetBot, Digital Sailing and Allen Sailing.
