RC Yachting

701248 orig


Welcome to the RC Yachting Fleet page, this is the place to find out what we are doing when, keep up to date with the racing or simply find out more about the RC Yachting fleet.

We are currently sailing
DF65's on Wednesday mornings from 10-30am
IOM on Friday mornings from 10-30am


DF65

We are now racing DF65 from 10-30am every Wednesday and have a regular fleet entry of 8 to 10 yachts with around 19 helms in the fleet.
We usually manage to sail around 8 or 10 short sharp races every week so there is always a chance to recover from that poor start or mark rounding with the next port flyer never more than 10 minutes away.

If you are interested in joining in, just turn up on one of our race days or e-mail rcyachts@ripon-sc.org.uk we are always keen to see more members taking part.
Yachts come almost ready to race and start around £230-00 including the radio control and batteries, second hand yachts can often be found for much less, if you are thinking of buying a yacht do come and talk to us first so we can make sure you don't spend more than you need to.

IOM
IOM (International One Meter) yachts are a recent introduction here at RSC, we currently have 7 helms racing regularly with a few guests sailing with us on Friday mornings.
Just like the DF65 these yachts provide some exciting and close racing so we are hoping to grow the fleet by attracting more new members to this much larger yacht.

RC Yacht helms must be MYA (Model Yachting Association) members so that they have the mandatory 3rd party insurance cover,
MYA membership is currently £14-00 a year and free to Junior members who are registered with the MYA through Ripon SC.
