We race radio controlled yachts, including the International One Metre (IOM) class and the DragonFlite 95 (DF95), both of which are 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.
We have resumed sailing in small groups complying with Covid-19 requirements for outdoor meeting. Please contact the Club Secretary for details of sailing times.
Wednesdays – DragonFlite 95 (DF95) (times vary)
Saturdays – International One Metre (IOM) (times vary)
