RG65

RG65 – Aero – New for 2021

Designed by John Taylor

LOA 650mm   Beam 102mm   Displacement 1.05 – 1.2 kgs

‘Aero’ is the 3rd generation design to represent us in this established class being sailed around the world. A fresh new hull shape that still incorporates a chine running the full length of the hull and a flared bow which enhances the boat’s downwind performance when hard pressed.  Much of the free-board of ‘Aero’ is considerably reduced in comparison to my previous class design, the result provides minimum wind resistance of the hull when sailing. This yacht can be purposely setup to suit the skippers requirements, meaning if people normally sail in breezy open lake venues, or in local ponds surrounded by trees, we can adjust ‘Aero’s’ overall displacement to suit. Skippers are asked to provide details of their preferred configuration prior to purchasing the ‘Aero‘ design.
 
 

Rig Specifications
‘Aero’ is fitted with 2 mast positions. Therefore, the skipper has a choice of using a combination of Swing and Conventional Rigs. There are various specialists who supply carbon tube and components for the rigs required for ‘Aero’. If you’re choosing to build your own rigs using a kit, ensure you follow the instructions carefully from your chosen rig supplier.
