We race our three yacht classes on three mornings a week, throughout the year.

Broadly, International One Metres (IOM), are raced every Friday and the second and fourth Sundays of each month. Radio Marbleheads (RM) are raced on the first and third Sundays of each month. In the four months of the year when there are five Sundays, these days are currently given to Radio Marbleheads, competing for the Alan’s Trophy.
We also race on Wednesday mornings. This day starts at 09:30 with more relaxed racing, when all classes are welcome. It is an opportunity, specially for new members, to develop boat handling skills, to set up and tune boats, and learn the racing rules of sailing, all in a slightly less pressured and more social racing setting. Those new to radio yacht racing are recommended to gain competency, on Wednesdays, before joining in with the series racing on Fridays and Sundays
The final 90 minutes or so are for racing our fleet of Dragon Force 65 yachts. This arrangement is always subject to whichever yacht classes are there on the day, and the Race Officer of the Day will adjust the programme to meet the needs of those attending.
Although the Club has not formally adopted the Dragon Flite 95 class, these are raced on an informal basis during the first session, depending on the numbers.
