It'll probably come into its own inland in an evening series... A little extra in the can is always welcome on those nights.Crossover for 7 versus 9 around 75kg I believe. Don't know the 5 to 7 crossover. Not sure I'm seeing much evidence the 9 is that much quicker.
We're excite to have this Aero join our area to be able to check it out. It will be fun to have this Aero and the demo Aero to see how they go against the Lasers. Make sure to bring the 9 rig for the demo boat though!I've found the RS site to be a bit silly with weights for the 5 / 7 / 9. I am told they are updating that to be easier to understand.
As more boats hit the water, data is coming in to fine tune that as well.
First Aero sold outside of the main Western States. Aero 7 going to Park City, Utah.
(Park City Sailing Association has a vibrant Laser fleet and learn to sail program, killer spot in the mountains)
Chuck,OK, a practical question - with the Aero and the standard cover, can you leave the boom (with sail still attached and rolled up) on when you put the cover on? Or do you have to drop the boom? If so, how many lines do you need to detach?
(I'm assuming you can leave the mast up - otherwise, I'll just keep my stupid laser that takes 15 minutes to put together...).
