Aero Demo Day
Come Sail an RS Aero
Demo Day in Seattle on Sept 12, 11-3 PM
Here is your chance to sail the new RS Aero. Our first demo day was so successful we’re setting up another chance for you to sail this awesome boat.
There are already 15 Aeros in Seattle (in just 8 months!) including 11 boats racing. Another 10 boats are sailing in Portland, and the U.S. will soon hit 100 boats. Just ask the 20+ boats at the inaugural North American Championships this past July (won by Seattle’s own Dan Falk) how fun and fast this boat is — upwards of 16 knots through the water and close racing at all levels.
Fast, Modern, Light Aero
Come see what sailing in the 21st century looks like! The RS Aero is a 13 foot single-hander that is amazingly light — the all up weight is about that of an Optimist. User-friendly ashore (quick to rig, easy car-topping), the boat is dramatically fast and responsive on the water. The boat’s carbon spars are featherweight yet have the strength and flexibility of carbon fiber. There are multiple rig sizes (5, 7, and 9 square meters) for all sailor weights.
You can join the fun with the growing Seattle fleet — weeknight racing is already happening and there are several regattas already planned for the fall and winter months.
Come see the boat and chat with local Seattle owners. RSVP by Sept 10 for a test sail at CYC Seattle at the north end of Shilshole Bay Marina on Sept 12. You must bring a PFD and suitable gear for dinghy sailing, such as wetsuit, spray top, or drysuit. These demos are being arranged by Seattle boat owners and a safety boat will be on hand.
