RS Aero UK National Championships and International Open at East Lothian YC - Day 2

by RS Aero UK Class Association 26 Jul 02:19 PDT 24-28 July 2019

Winds up to 20kn and big waves for surfing downwind on the outer loop provided an exciting opening day to the RS Aero UK Nationals.

The 80 RS Aero fleet launched on time and with the splendid racing conditions today the Race Team added a third race to make the most of them.

Juror, David Battye, was on hand to oversee racing and the fleet had the benefit of his expertise with a pre-racing clinic to explain his processes and guidelines for making rulings on the water, when necessary.
