The Mt Martha RS Aero fleet doubled in size last week, with Stuart Facey and Tim Deen joining Victoria Land and David Andrew sailing the world’s fastest growing dinghy class.
It is hoped that the fleet may grow to 7 by the start of the 2018-2019 season with Fleur, Helen Lovett and Greg Burkhalter all thinking of joining the fun.
The third RS Aero Australian Championships are being held in Pt Stephens from 6 - 9 December 2018, and the MMYC fleet took to the water last Sunday, on the most glorious sailing day, for its 1st winter training session in preparation for the event.
