12 RS Aeros visited at Haltern am See, near Dortmund, Germany, sharing the weekend with the O’Pen Bic Class.
Blessed with two Days of good sun and fresh breezes there were many big smiles evident in the photos. Racing was in ‘7’ rigs with sailors free to decrease to the ‘5’ rig. The German event format is evolving to organise regattas with numerous and not too long races. At Haltern there were 8 races of 30 to 35 minutes over 2 days, scored with 2 discards after 8 races.
Congratulations the Marcus Walther of DSCL, Frankfurt, for taking the win. New owner Juliane Barthel was 2nd overall and 1st female with 16 year old Felix Cremer in 3rd.
