This last weekend was the RS Aerocup in Barcelona.
They had about 40 sailors - mainly Brits but also a sprinkling of other random Europeans plus one lone American.
Looking at the photo above of one of the RS Aeros sailing in Barcelona, I am beginning to think that maybe my friends and I have been doing it all wrong. It never looks like that when we sail RS Aeros.
Do I need to buy some scuba gear?
It sounds like the sailors in Barcelona also had a good time hitting the tapas bars - and just bars generally - after sailing.
There is some discussion going on in North America about setting up a formal RS Aero class association here. Meanwhile, in the UK they already have an RS Aero class association and it even has a Social Coordinator who was at the RS Aerocup in Barcelona. I am not sure what a Class Social Coordinator does. Are they supposed to choose which tapas bars - and just bars generally - to hit after sailing?
Here are some photos of the social coordinating at Barcelona in full swing.
And here is a picture of the Social Coordinator after a hard night of social coordinating.
What do you think?
Do we need a Social Coordinator for the North American RS Aero Class?
