A fabulous weekend of racing was had at Rutland, concluding both the RS Aero UK Southern and Northern Circuits. The varied and testing weekend gave a fitting finale to a busy year for the UK RS Aeros.

A very windy Pursuit Race on Saturday, a great Saturday night gathering and then three calmer PY fleet races for the RS Aeros on Sunday all provided a great mix.

Craig Williamson (Staunton Harold) finished top RS Aero in the mass RS Classes pursuit race in his shiny new RS Aero 7. Steve Stewart (Yorkshire Dales) revelled in the strong gusts in his RS Aero 5 to take second.

Sunday was a very different affair with light to medium breeze for the three PY races. The RS Aero 9s made their mark with Greg Bartlett (Starcross) nailing race one from Chris Rust. Marshall King (Royal St George, IRE) was sailing his first RS Aero event in a charter RS Aero provided by RS Sailing and took race two from Chis Larr (Northampton). In race three Jeff Davison (Island Barn) and Chis Larr were tied for first after PY.

Ultimately Craig Williamson took the overall win on tie break from Marshall with Jeff taking third. Chris Larr finished top RS Aero 9 in fourth and Steve Stewart led the RS Aero 5s in eighth. Top Lady was Emily Watson (Bowmoor).
