The repeat 2023 event took place on a bright, warm and dry, but gusty day at Manor Park. The wind was above the "Victoria limit" and only four courageous heats were possible, taken between bacon butties - out of eight yachts starting, two were withdrawn damaged after two heats! In spite of the wind, once again, great fun was had by all. Barry Salt won the day and the trophy will be competed for next in spring 2024.

Part 5 - Yacht Racing Rules

Racing Rules

Although we consider ourselves a gentlemanly club, as our membership increases, we have published rules intended to foster model yacht racing whether formal, as part of club competitions or less formal as recreation. The aim being to meet in a convivial and constructive environment that is non confrontational.

Our method of scoring is explained in Appendix A of the Rules.
