Radio Control Racing

‘For those who prefer to keep their feet dry, we have a Radio Controlled racing fleet who mainly sail DF65’s, however, all designs are welcome to join us. A new 65 costs about £270 but pre used boats can be significantly less.

 

We meet most Saturday mornings from about 11.00 for some racing and boat tuning sessions. 

All members are welcome to have a sail and we have boats that you can borrow. 

Racing usually takes place from the pontoon, providing an excellent viewpoint. Racers of any age can join in....here we see ages ranging from 11 - XXXX. Younger & new sailors find this an extremely useful way to learn sailing rules & techniques from the safety of dry land.

Pre- race preparations in the club house. Everyone helping others with rig settings & tips. If in doubt....just ask!! They are a really helpful & friendly bunch...and generally have cake for the 'half time interval'!!
