One of America’s most inspiring Championship venues, The Gorge, Cascade Locks, Oregon, USA will be hosting the 2019 RS Aero North American Championships! Here’s just a few of the reasons why you should attend…
The pre-event coaching
The infamous Steve Cockerill of Rooster, who is the 2017 RS Aero 7 World Champion will be running a Pre-Event Coaching Clinic, on June 25-26. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn from this RS Aero guru!
One of America’s most inspiring Championship venues with the afternoon thermal breeze piping up against the Columbia River’s current to provide some fantastic long downwind rides through breathtaking mountain scenery!
The Gorge is a unique sailing venue creating a wind-tunnel between the beautiful mountains that rise from the waters edge to nearly one mile vertically high in places. In summer westerlies are the prevailing wind direction, dying down in the evening.
The current at Cascade Locks generally runs at 1 to 2 knots. The deepest channel on the river is where the most extreme conditions can occur. For a relatively easier going sailors can move to the edge of the channel/river. Depths can vary from 20 feet to more than 170 feet in places.
Having hosted World Championships for the International Moth and Tasar classes in recent years The Gorge and its challenges are recognised worldwide as a World Class sailboat racing venue.
