On Saturday March 11th Lymington Town Sailing Club's RC Yachting section met for their March monthly championship.

The club exclusively sail the Dragon Force 65 one design radio controlled yacht once a week, this boat was chosen because they are cheap (competitive second hand boats available from £125, new from under £200) but also because the one design rule is strict and ensures great racing. We regularly have 20+ boats out sailing on a summer evening which provides great racing and a nice social.

Despite a forecast for no wind 11 boats turned up to do battle, in what turned out to be a light but firm breeze, we got in 12 races on a windward leeward course. It was very close at the top with Simon (Cake) McCarthy coming out on top with Jon Harvey taking second place and Paul Davis in third.

We race every Saturday during the winter and every Tuesday evening during the summer.
