RS Aero sailing at Northampton

38 RS Aeros arrived at Northampton SC with the promise of some good fresh breezes throughout the weekend. The field was stacked with an RS Aero World Champion, a UK National Champion and two RS Aerocup Italian Champions.

As the breeze freshened to around 25kns the fleet had an exciting time on the downwind P...

Early breakfasts were organised and speedy rig up with an air of anticipation as white horses could be spotted in the distance across the...

RS800 2017 Volvo Noble Marine National Championship

With the overall Championship all but sewn up by Chris Rashley and Billy Vennis-Ozanne, there was still all to play to for many of the teams lower down the order on the fourth and final day of the Volvo Noble Marine RS800 National Championships, not least the battle for 2nd with Pete Barton and Chris Feibusch on equal points with last year’s champions, Luke and Emma McEwen.

A fresher breeze than the previous day and the Easterly flowing tide was throwing up some chop across the race...
