    Close racing, a super friendly class, a truly modern sailboat, and great support from enthusiastic dealers - it's not hard to work out why the RS Aero Fleet is growing so rapidly in North America.  Video from RS Aero Midwinters last weekend in Jensen Beach, Florida.

    I once heard the RS Aero described as being for sailors who have got beyond the stage of sailing their boat into docks at full speed. I think that's fair. It's not indestructible but it is a well designed boat that is surprisingly tough for such a lightweight boat. However I would take issue...

    Olympic sailing may be a challenge to the continued widespread popularity of the classes who become Olympic classes. Thankfully there are many more classes who are not Olympic classes which continue to thrive without Olympic status (including the RS Aero.)

    I have no personal experience with RS Zests. As an RS Aero sailor for nearly 5 years now I can only say I am very impressed with the durability and reliability of the boat.

It's certainly the most thorough, analytic and detailed review of the RS Aero conducted so far. The report is full of many positive comments about the Aero and I am sure everyone involved...

    Good to hear such positive news about Wildwinds. According to their website they have 2 RS Aeros this season. Minorca Sailing is also an excellent option for anyone wanting a dinghy sailing vacation in the Mediterranean. I see they will have 10 RS Aeros this year. Could be an excellent option...
