RS Aero Worlds - Weymouth & Portland

18 Aug 2018 6:34 PM | Millar (Administrator)

3 of East Lothian Yacht Club's most dedicated souls, Iain McGonigal, John Wilcox and Robbie Lawson, dragged themselves, and their boats all the way down to the Weymouth & Portland for the 2018 RS Aero World Championships during the week of 4th-10th August.

A sum total of 208 boats competed across the 4 fleets. 61 Aero 5's, 43 Aero 9's and Aero 7 Gold/Silver fleets consisting of 53 boats each. This shows exactly how popular this boat has become since its release in 2014.

A total of 12 races made up the series for each fleet (i'm exhausted just thinking about that!) with Robbie finishing 17th in the 9's, Iain taking 33rd in the 7 Gold fleet and John securing 47th, also  in the Gold fleet.

All three a credit to the club and no doubt they were promoting East Lothian Yacht Club with the Northern Champs and Nationals visiting us in the near future.

Well done chaps!
