In recent times, we race radio controlled yachts, including the International One Metre (IOM) class which is sailed world wide.
Racing radio controlled yachts
Radio control allows several yachts to race together, using rules almost identical to those used when full size yachts race together. Typically a race follows a ‘triangle and sausage’ course around marks in the pond, with a start and finish line between two marks. Races are started with a countdown tape, and spectators will often hear skippers ‘discussing’ rules as a race progresses.
In the light of Government advice on the Covid-19 pandemic all club activity is suspended until further notice.
The weed has temporarily disappeared and some club sailing has resumed (Weather permitting.) Based on past experience we will not be able to sail after June.
Wednesdays 1200 – 1400 Suspended
Saturdays 1200 – 1500 Suspended Note change of day from Sunday took place in 2016.
