Welch wins 2022 RS Aero North Americans

Published on May 22nd, 2022

Ricky Welch was the overall champion at the 2022 RS Aero North American Championship held May 20-22 at Davis Island Yacht Club in Tampa, FL. Thirty-seven competitors entered in one of the three rig sizes (5, 7, 9) for eight races in a variety of conditions.

Welch also captured the RS Aero 7 Division ahead of Top Junior Callen Burnett of the host club. In the larger rig size Madhaven Thirumalai bested the RS Aero 9 Division in a tightly fought battle with Eugene Schmit. Local Caroline Young added to her recent Sunfish major trophies by winning in the smallest rig the RS Aero 5, also placing ninth overall as First Woman. The class offers a Most Improved prize at this regatta, won by Dylan Williams two days after turning 14.

Times and overall results were for the sole purpose of determining one overall winner, while all other results are within Divisions. For results, click here.
