The RS Aero 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 meaning the RS Aero is remarkably easy to handle.
The RS philosophy has always been to prioritise ultra-light weight, performance and practicality in order to produce a simple, yet refined and durable single-hander that will suit any sailor between 35 and 95kg.
Astonishingly, the RS Aero hull weighs less than an Optimist at just 30kg, with three rig options that will typically suit the following weight ranges;
35 – 65kg – Aero 5 (5.2 square metre sail) Y.A Yardstick 116.8 similar to Laser Radial Impulse and OK
55 – 85kg – Aero 7 (7.4 square metre sail) Y.A Yardstick 112.5 similar to Laser Int Finn and Int 420
75kg plus – Aero 9 (8.9 square metre sail) YA Yardstick 109.3 similar to Tasar NS 14
The Aero 9 can race competitively with helms over 100kg!
The RS Aero brings excitement of sailing in its least complicated form – complex thinking leading to beautiful simplicity. It is affordable and, with RS Sailing’s global distribution network, assured of worldwide success.
