Entries are already flooding in for the RS Aero Virtual Regatta Championships to be held on the VR waters of Aarhus, Fécamp, Kiel and Cagliari over the week commencing the 4th May. Racing will take place from 6.30pm BST onwards for the various fleets.

We are accepting entries from sailors who associate themselves with being in the Aero Class. We are seeking Champions, for the single reason that the Aero class is subdivided into the three different rigs, Aero 5 for the youth and lighter adults (& anyone sensible when there's a big breeze), Aero 7 for the weight range typically between 55-80 kg & the Aero 9 for the larger sailors out there.

As of early morning on 28th April we are already at 72 entries, meaning there will be various flights going off throughout the week's evenings, with the Finals expected on Thursday 7th May, to crown our Virtual Class Champions, certainly for this month at least!

The application process through Microsoft Forms will be open until Friday 23.59 BST from any Aero Sailors interested in getting involved.

For those unsure whether it's for them, the RYA has dedicated pages to help you get your J70 Dayboat Racer around the racetrack as fast as possible, as well as Youtube videos from the experts alongside The Lockdown Cup mini-series to watch how the top sailors do their thing!

Get your entries in, then get yourselves virtually racing fit.
