After years of development we believe the RS aero is the most technically advanced boat in its sector. Which explains why it’s the most exciting and best-selling modern single-hander. And easily handled too. Astonishingly, the RS aero weighs about the same as an Optimist. That drives everything about its incredible user friendliness through transporting, rigging and launching – before you even experience the addictive sensations afloat. Complex thinking leading to beautiful simplicity – the RS aero ignites the pure excitement of sailing in its least complicated form. Four rig sizes enable youths, women and guys to enjoy the ride. Already an International Class and winner of the 2019 World Sailing Equipment Trials for the 2024 Men’s and Women’s One Person Dinghy Event, the community is building fast for the most competitive sailors. It’s a phenomenon. Just do it.
