After years of development, 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. 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. Three rig sizes enable youths, ladies and guys to enjoy the ride. Already an International Class, the community is building fast for the most competitive sailors. It’s a phenomenon. Just do it.
