RS Aero Class Scottish Training at Dalgety Bay Sailing Club

by RS Aero UK Class Association 29 Apr 07:14 BST 22-23 April 2023

Lovely to re-visit Dalgety Bay SC for their Spring RS Aero coaching with 20 RS Aeros from across Scotland and Northern England. Spring had arrived and the daffodils were out with 16’C temps, blue skies and a fresh breeze!

Two good sessions were held afloat in a nice variety of quite different conditions on Sunday after an extended constructive onshore day on Saturday as the gale passed through covering 'Everything Aero' from boat specifics and technique to general race craft around the course. The training was aimed at all levels with everyone from world champions to new-comers able to take some valuable learnings away whist having fun together.

This year the RS Aero Scottish Series visits East Lothian, Loch Lomond and finally Dalgety Bay for the RS Aero Scottish Champs in October. In 2024 the RS Aero 5 & 7 UK National Champs return to ELYC, North Berwick late July after our wonderful week in 2019. Scottish RS dealers, Sailingfast, have big hopes for the RS Aero in Scotland and Team Scotland’s build up to the 2024 UK Nationals. They are keen to hear from anyone looking to upgrade their RS Aero, buy a new one or a pre-loved one. Join the fun!

From the enthusiasm generated at Dalgety Bay over the weekend two Scottish RS Aeros are now joining the World Championships in Sardinia this summer. Sailingfast will assist in delivering the boats south to join the lorry transporting UK RS Aero owners boats.

The Scottish Training was supported by Scottish RS Aeros, RS Aero UK Class Association, Sailingfast and RS Sailing.
