A-Class Championship – Video Highlights

Good evening model yacht racing fans! Tonight we present a video of the recent A-Class Championships. It was very good, by all accounts.

There is no getting around it… This is big file and it might take a while to stream/download/watch but hopefully, its worth it… these were some Classic Fleetwood Vane A Conditions™ … One for the ages. Thanks to Bob Jolly for sending the footage in.

We’ll also be dropping another massive gallery of pictures soon (when your internet has calmed down)

Standby!

Ends in Salad

What a great year… plenty of big events, club racing, lots of laughs and Eddie Greenwood’s epic struggle against the dreaded weed which tormented our keels all year.

And now we look forward to the DF Squadron, Lasers, Schooners, IOM Opens, DF Opens and MYA National Championships in three of our finest classes. 2017 is shaping up nicely.

The Last Hurrah

Nine never say die skippers enjoyed a rare westerly and the early morning breeze which made for a sail selection dilemma with the A rig’s down wind speed proving to be advantageous.

After a lunch break there was lots of knowledge passed round the fleet and tuning tips again shared. All skippers went for the A rig for the last few races. Enjoying what might be the last sail of the year before the lake is drained. Another great day with these exciting yachts.

Many thanks to Tony for the pics and to the growing Fleetwood DF95 fleet for braving the elements.
