You may think it odd that a 75 year old, more or less sane, bloke would be interested in Radio Controlled Model Yachts....but I am!
Apart from being able to enjoy my favoourite sport, I would not have to row out to the Etchells, would not have to even get my feet wet, would be able to put it in the back of the car and could try it out agaist some other people in different venues without having to trail a 30' yacht.
In fact, I would only get wet if it was raining!
And what a fantastic training aid!!!
We are creating a new Class in our Club featuring the RC Lasers. More details will be published as we go down the track but, if you are interested, please let me know. Ring me on 0412 493 586 (John Way)
Here is a video on the Radio Controlled Lasers especially on how to set them up.
Here is a video that really got me in!
The thing that impresses me is that it all fits in a bag and is strictly one design like the real ones! They would be easy to sell if you became sick of them and they are sailed all over the world.
The dimensions and so forth are HERE
There are several fleets in the Sydney area. The distributer's webpage is HERE
And this is a link to the South African Site HERE
And a Tugboat to the rescue!!
After setting up this page and doing a lot of research I now own an RC Laser!
