Thanks to UK Class Chairman, Nigel Rolfe, for his refined update on the ever useful RS Aero Rig Selection Guide he created two years ago.
The RS Aeros Class has enjoyed a huge number of events since it was first produced, enabling extra clarity through the experience and understanding gained. The guide provides a really handy summary if you are ever unsure.
Most keen RS Aero racers will opt for two rigs, enabling the benefit of choice when they travel to an event and ensuring that less sailing days are lost due to particularly strong or light winds.
Having that flexibility of choice allows;
More fun – the right sail size for the current conditions
More participation – both starting and finishing races
More safety – leaving more safety boat resource for other classes who don’t have the option.
