Radio Sailing Eastleigh is the radio sailing section of the Eastleigh And District Model Boat Club(EDMBC). It has its sailing home at the beautiful Lakeside Country Park, with its lakes, wild life and famous model railway. Our sailing location is clearly shown in this aerial photograph,
and on this Google Map, not far from M27 Junction 5 and Southampton Parkway Rail Station, and just beyond the Eastleigh Model Railway.
We have more than 40 members, some of whom are or have been “full size” yacht sailors, but many came to radio yacht racing with no knowledge of sailing at all. So, we always welcome visitors and new members of all levels of experience. See contact details elsewhere on this site.
We are affiliated to the Model Yachting Association (MYA), which is itself affiliated to the International Radio Sailing Association, the IRSA. We race International One Metre yachts and Radio Marbleheads both of which have international status. We also race the Dragon Force 65, an off the shelf, single design class, which is gaining widespread popularity. Check the menu if you want to know more details of the racing Programme.
Our ‘mainstay’ is the International One Metre, with an active fleet of over 30 boats. Our active fleet of Marbleheads is about 16 strong, and having only started racing DF65s in spring 2016, we now have 20 skippers in total.
