Put your name on an RS Aero one-person sailing dinghy now. With a great introductory offer on new boat sales in November and a Covid-19 summer approaching, there is no better time to be out sailing. After all, it’s the ideal sport for social distancing while we wait out lockdown!

Order an RS Aero before the end of November* and:

  • Receive complimentary setup, rigging and commissioning of your new RS Aero

  • Receive free delivery to any major depot within New Zealand

  • Get 10% off all accessories, including additional rigs (mainsail and mast section)

Although seen by many as a dedicated racing sailboat, the RS Aero is enjoyed by many recreational sailors all around the world.

Many sailors who don’t for whatever reason compete in the sport, like the ease of maintenance, simplicity of rigging and sheer enjoyment factor of the RS Aero.

These things, coupled with the fact that they can easily rig, launch and recover their boats with limited or no additional support, lower the barriers to sailing that many other sailboats present.

There has never before been a time when people choose to participate in sporting activities as part of their day-to-day lives, and sailing has seen a huge growth in interest as a result.

Boats like the RS Aero represent a solution to several key criteria placed on these more ‘lifestyle’ activities. With this trend set to continue to grow, the number of RS Aeros being used for non-competitive water-based activity will increase as a result.
