Monday, 09 October 2017

7-10th October

by the RS Aero International Class Association

The RS Aerocup kicked of today with 50 entries from 13 countries signed up providing an awesomely international fleet set for some intense but friendly racing, extending the season at Italy’s legendary venue. The 50 RS Aero entries allow for Class racing of the 3 RS Aero fleets with three separate starts.

Rooster Sailing are supporting the event, providing an exciting array of prizes. At today’s daily ‘Pasta Party’ provided by the hosts FVM the daily Rooster awards were presented through the fleet recognising achievement large and small. ‘Top Tips’ were coerced from the series leaders where the experts shared any winning gems of knowledge.

In the RS Aero 9s World Championship silver medallist, Liam ‘Lightening’ Willis GBR, knocked in two 1sts to lead overnight from Simon Maguire GBR who took the win in Race 3. Nederland’s Harmon De Lange is currently 3rd.

The RS Aero 7 fleet sees many new faces and it is great to see Italy top the leader board with Patrick Zeni winning two races. Ireland’s Paul McMahon took the win in Race 1 to finish the day 3rd overall to a consistent Peter Barton of Great Britain in 2nd.  Quickly getting onto the pace in his new RS Aero and leading two races was Ben George of Great Britain, certainly on to watch for tomorrow. Top Lady in 4th overall is Juliane Barthel of Germany.

In the RS Aeros 5s Kate Sargent nailed three 1sts to take a comfortable lead. Ireland’s Roy Van Maanen and Italy’s Tiziano Arioli are set to pounce and a fresher breeze tomorrow could see Rooster Sailing’s pocket rocket challenged.
