|We are delighted that the second RS Aero World Championship will be part of the massive RS Sailing Anniversary Games at the Olympic Venue of Weymouth in the UK. We look forward to building on the near 100 RS Aero fleet and fantastic racing that we all enjoyed at Carnac, France, last year! |
For the second year, it is exciting to have Rooster on board again as title sponsor with their generous backing and dedicated dinghy sailing product range.
The last RS Games in 2011, also at Weymouth, was a build up to the 2012 Olympics and saw bumper entries across the RS fleets with a wonderful mass regatta atmosphere. The WPNSA site will be completely blinged for the Regatta, with a vibrant Sailor's Village - think Cowes Week but with dinghy sailors and cheaper drinks! There will be socials planned with our usual mix of entertainment.
We join the RS Games party from Saturday 4 to Friday 10 August. Racing will be from Monday 6 to Friday 10 with registration, measurement and coaching the weekend before.
We share the week with the RS Tera Class, who are also having their World Championship on a separate race area. This will allow parents and siblings of the RS Tera sailors to compete in the RS Aero Worlds, rather than being left behind on the beach! The RS Feva Europeans starts racing the day after the RS Aero Worlds finish, so it is possible for our younger sailors (or anyone actually!) to compete in both.
Racing The sailing will be out on the fabulous and varied waters which contested the 2012 Olympics and will be held predominantly out in the bay. 2 or 3 races per day are scheduled, from Monday 6 to Friday 10 August.
