Recommended Posts

From Tuesday 31st May 2022 we will meet every Tuesday at 18.00, whatever the weather, alongside the green cabin, up the hill, for a race start at 18.30 at Manor Park Radio Sailing Club. Visitors, from outside the club, are always welcome, at a small charge of £3, which includes our free teas or coffees. Garry Box, who is our prospective Df95 Captain, and regularly races in the TT series, reckons 8 races will be possible by 20.30. We do wear lifejackets on the jetties. A number are available to borrow. The clubhouse will be opened and has full facilities.

The evenings will be friendly, for all levels, with help in setting up, if needed. We set a proper race course. Please let us know, if you are coming, in advance, so that we can prepare and make sure that you do not miss the yellow gates, half a mile after the postcode. Arriving early will allow more time to set up new radios and boats. We will adapt as we find out what suits everyone best. We are hoping for 6 to 12 yachts initially, which works well.

Good luck with this, we've been doing this at Fleetwood since the first df65's came out & it's brought us loads of new members, some of whom have graduated to IOM's 6m's and even F/S (Vane) M & 36" .

we start week after Easter & race till 2nd week in Sept.

 

Our members love it.
