As interest in Radio Yachting continues to grow, Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club (NCYC) is endeavouring to form a RC Yacht fleet. To encourage sailors to try RC Yachting, the club is hosting an exhibition day on the 7th May and is inviting sailors of RC Yachts, Dinghies, cruising yachts and other sailing sports – as well as non-sailors who would like to give sailing a try. As part of the day, Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club will be exhibiting a variety of RC Yachts, including International One Metre Class, 10 Rater Class & RC Laser Class model yachts. The Club has welcomed the support of Lake Macquarie Radio Yacht Club (LMRYC) & Dobroyd Aquatic Club (DAC) in holding the exhibition.
RC Yacht Exhibition Day Schedule of Activity
The exhibition will start at 11am and run through to about 2.30pm with one fully-rigged boat of each class on display on waterfront walkway in front of club for people to view up close with LMRYC and DAC representatives on hand to look after boats and answer enquiries.
A small course will be set up in the area in front of club for the RC Yachts to sail. All interested attendees will be given instruction on how to sail an RC Yacht and are welcome to try their hand at sailing the boats around the course. Not only will visitors be able to test their sailing skills with an RC Yacht, a small number of boats sailing the course will provide a great spectacle for people dining in the Club restaurant.
Owners and sailors of RC Yachts are encouraged to get involved in the exhibition to help out with answering questions and providing instructions. For further information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
If you know someone who would be interested to attend, please provide the details or ask them to contact us.
