The Small Boat Regatta at Massapaog YC kicked off as a regatta for Sunfish and Lasers.
In 2015, the RS Aeros found space in the event and now this is the fleet that is most looked forward to in the event. This year saw the biggest fleet of the RS Aeros take part in the Massapoag YC Small Boat Regatta. A total of 13 RS Aeros took part in this year’s event. Sailors from the United Kingdom, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts sailed a mix of seven, nine and five rigs. This is for the first time in the history of the event that the various RS Aero rigs were scored on handicaps making use of the RYA Portsmouth yardsticks.
