Tagged under the agent for RS Sailboats is delighted to announce the sale of a further four new RS Aeros into the class in Ireland.

The single-handed class has enjoyed a buoyant growth in the last year with many turning to the class due to superior ergonomics and a modern take on a performance dinghy.

With over 20 active boats in the Dublin area alone, the class is the largest PY class in the Dublin Bay Sailing Club summer racing series. Hopefully, as these numbers grow, the RS Aero will likely deserve its own start in the DMYC Frostbite series and Dublin Bay Series next year.

The Aero fleet is heading North to Carrickfergus on the 13th and 14th of August to meet up with a significant fleet that has also grown quickly in the North of Ireland, particularly in Ballyholme. Hammy Baker the recent winner of the RS Easterns in the Royal St George will be actively defending his recent win.

The fleet has a very healthy gender balance with many female sailors turning to the boat as it is significantly lighter and therefore easier to handle both ashore and afloat than other popular singlehanded dinghies.
