Press Release from RS Sailing

The Evaluation Report regarding Equipment for the Olympic One-Person Events (2024 and beyond) has been published today by World Sailing.

RS Sailing is proud that the RS Aero achieves the highest overall score in the extremely comprehensive report, which analyses all key aspects of the boats and their production:

  • RS Aero 80%
  • Laser 69%
  • Melges 14 54%
  • D-Zero 52%

World Sailing Equipment Committee will discuss the Evaluation Report and make a recommendation to Council, for its selection decision, at the Mid-Year meeting on May 18/19.

We believe the RS Aero, backed by RS Sailing’s commitment to the sport, capabilities and commercial stability, offers a great opportunity to move the game forward at all levels. We trust World Sailing’s Council will agree and select the highest scorer from the long evaluation process.

Our thanks to the Evaluation Panel for their many hours of work in assessing the boats and compiling the Report.
