Welcome to the Portchester Sailing Club Radio Sailing section, often referred to as the 'little boat' section.
This is a group of sailors who get their sailing fix from radio controlled yachts when the main sailing season is over. This section was born and developed around the Dragon Force 65 sailing boat, but is not exclusive and welcomes anyone with an RC yacht to get on the water in the off season or when ever you can.
Dragon Force boats were chosen due to their reasonable cost and ease of build, transport and maintenance. they are also well supported locally and across the UK. Other local clubs sailing the DF65 include Mengeham Rythe SC, Royal Southampton Yacht Club and Lymington Town Sailing Club. They are also raced at Gosport model sailing club and on Canoe Lake in Southsea by Portsmouth Model Yacht Racing Club.
We have scheduled races once a fortnight to coincide with HW. These are primarily lunchtimes but vary from mid-morning to mid-afternoon. This year we are sailing on a Sunday, but we do have if the conditions suit, have ad-hoc races
If you fancy joining in or would like to try this type of sailing please come and join us at any meeting or email Chris at firstname.lastname@example.org. The racing is competitive and the DF65 fleet race under class rules making for close match racing at a reasonable cost. Portchester Sailing Club is affiliated to the MYA. We also have a few marble head and IOM class boat owners who come and join in. Why not come and give it a go!
