Georges River Sailing Club

RS Aero

The RS Aero is the newest class to race at GRSC. We race on Saturdays at 2pm with mid-week sailing during the summer.

The RS Aero prioritises ultra-light weight, performance and practicality in order to produce a simple, yet refined and durable boat that will suit any sailor between 35 and 100kg. Astonishingly, the RS Aero hull weighs less than an Optimist at just 30kg.

There are four rig options (RS Aero 5, 6, 7 & 9) which will typically suit:

  • Youths  and Light women – RS Aero 5 & 6
  • Women and light men – RS Aero 7
  • Men – RS Aero 9

The result is a boat that completely re-sets the standard for pure exhilaration in a simple single-hander. Ultra-light weight means the hull form and rigs need not be extreme, so the RS Aero is remarkably easy to handle. And light weight makes the RS Aero exceptionally user-friendly on shore. Virtually anyone can lift the boat onto a car roof-rack – pulling it up the beach makes you smile – and simplicity means the boat can be rigged in moments.

If you have sailing & racing experience in dinghies or windsurfers and would like to have a test sail, we have an RS Aero at the club.
