RS Aero at HISC

The RS Aero re-sets the standard for pure exhilaration in a simple singlehander. The boat is ultra-light weight and easy to handle with guaranteed performance and practicality.

The RS Aero suits any sailor between 35 and 95kg making it an incredibly versatile dinghy. The hull weighs less than an Optimist at just 30kg making it easy to manoeuvre on shore.

Three rig options are available which typically suit:

• RS Aero 5 – Youths

• RS Aero 7 – Women and light men

• RS Aero 9 – Men

There are 20 Aeros at the club with a number that are sailed regularly in the Wednesday evening club racing series.

A few participate in weekend club racing and they are also popular for use in the Women on Water initiative.
