  1. Just had a good watch of the RG65 nationals videos posted on YouTube.

    Is there a reason courses for small classes such as the RG65 having courses set with the windward mark way way off into the distance? I feel it just becomes an eyesight test both for the skippers and observers. Lots of tacking to avoid boats they would never have impeded.

    This is not a slight on the PRO and his/her team btw, just a discussion point.

    Surely it’s better to have smaller courses with more opportunity for place changes, and therefore more races? I know it’s different for the larger classes who need long courses to stretch their legs.

  5. Hi all,

    If you would like to join the class mailing list, and haven’t already done so please send an email to:


    I’ve written a short questionnaire and it would be useful for the class if you can fill it in. If you haven’t already received an email from me and you own or want to own a 36 please follow the link below:


  6. Just to highlight the risk of leaving rigs in plastic bags.. 

    I had to strip the bearings from all 5 of my M conventional rigs as most of them are rusted solid! £8+ each to replace!!

    They are now hanging properly 🤦‍♂️




    Hi all

    Looking forward to 2022, I’m hoping we can get at least 3 events in the calendar.

    Midland District Champs @ Bourneville

    Met/Southern District Champs

    National Champs @ Bourneville 

    Drag out your 36 over the winter, dust it off and get it back on the water!

    Any Radio 36s left in the Northern District?


  7. Hi Trevor

    maybe you could retro fit a pot with glass surround? I presume winch is forward of the mast? Or cut a new hole?

    Would be useful to see a photo of your boat to suggest a solution.

    example of a cockatoo with pot below...
