Radio Sailing Section
Slipper Radio Sailors meet to race 1 Metre class yachts. A regular programme takes place throughout the year, but the major series is on Sunday mornings between October and Easter. The sessions are timed to finish as the Bar opens!The standard of racing is improving and some members go off to Open Meetings and Championships. The Racing Rules of Sailing are fully applied, although some members claim failing eyesight as an excuse for their infringements!
Around 30 members have 1 Metre yachts with numbers increasing all the time. Our youngest member is 13 years old, with others across the age groups. Some members build their own yachts, while others buy from a local builder.
