Massapoag Yacht Club is the home of the Boston RS Aero Fleet, the first RS Aero fleet on the east coast of the United States.
Designed by Jo Richards and RS Sailing, the RS Aero is a 21st century single handler that combines ultra-light weight, performance and practicality in a simple, yet refined and durable boat. The RS Aero hull weighs only 66 lbs which makes it easy to handle on shore and delivers breath-taking acceleration on the water. High tech materials are used in the composite epoxy foam sandwich hull, with carbon fiber in high load areas and in the spars. There are three rigs sizes to suit different sailor weights and wind conditions, making it suitable for any sailor weighing between 80 and 210 lbs.
There is an active racing program at Massapoag Yacht Club for RS Aeros with fleet racing on Thursdays from June to August, and multi class pursuit racing Sundays from May to October, and a multi class pursuit racing on Wednesday evenings from May through August. RS Aeros participate in the MYC Small Boat Regatta early in the season and the MYC Annual Regatta in September.
