Another great weekend for the 2022 Dutch National Championship RS Aero 7 and Class Championship RS Aero 5. In total 29 RS Aero sailors joined from The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Luxembourg to compete on the beautiful waters of Lake Grevelingen at Bruinisse.
The Saturday gave us great sailing weather where 5 races where held and again perfectly managed by the ZCK Race Officer Sacha Ruijs and her professional team. The Sunday started with blue skies and, as forecasted, no wind. After midday it became clear that the wind was not returning in time and races were abandoned.
Again too hard to beat on the RS Aero 7, Shivam Ramdas won his championship for the fourth time in a row for the 2022 National Champion in the RS Aero 7. He was followed in 2nd by Victor Deripainsel from Belgium and in 3rd place, with family ties, Anouck Deripainsel from Belgium who was 1st Female.
In the RS Aero 5 Class Championship the 1st place was rewarded to Joppe Pattyn from Belgium, 2nd place Kobe Stroobandt from Belgium and 3rd place to Jara Moorman from The Netherlands.
