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.
We have resumed sailing in small groups complying with Covid-19 requirements for outdoor meeting. Please contact the Club Secretary for confirmation of sailing times.
