Slide Competitive.... Slide Technical.... Slide Friendly.... Slide Recharge Your Sailing

Radio and Free Sailing in the UK

Our sport can be split in to 2 disciplines, Radio Sailing and Free Sailing and although both are still popular it is Radio Sailing that can be most easily found on a lake or water near you.

Today’s yachts range from home built yachts whose owners get great pleasure from the building process, collectors and restorers who through their efforts keep the history and knowledge in our sport, to the top end competitive skippers who race their carbon fibre and kevlar boats at local, national and international level.

Whatever level you wish to be involved there are people who will share your passion and commitment.

Interested?

Why not check out the rest of our site and use the club list to find a club near to you, make yourself known and talk to a skipper, most are more than willing to discuss our sport and even let you have a go.

The MYA is recognised by the RYA as the governing body of Radio and Free Sailing within the UK.

Alton Radio Controlled Sailing Club sent some of its members out in force 6 winds today as part of out help the aged program 😁. Gusts often exceeded force 7 which produced some great short steep waves to play in. Although the "D" rigs had not been used for some time, racing was as fierce as ever. There are more photo on our Facebook page if your interested. Please feel free to come and say hello and if you are in the area, come and have a sail with us. Regular 10+ fleet of DF95's and with the 65's 15+ ... See MoreSee Less

Great pic's!

Great pictures!!! The photographer is to be commended.

A great day on D rig which we seldom get to use so valuable insight into sailing in these conditions. Can’t speak highly enough about these boats and the design that works so well in all conditions!!

Brill photos. Those boats are going really well! 😊 Maybe being tempted a bit too much!

Top morning sailing and cracking pictures

Great fun, both the 95s and 65s seem to revel in these conditions!

Just got my new DF95 stand from breakingwindboats.com. It’s awesome, Craig will even put your AMYA yacht registration numbers on the stand. Comes with a keel box at the perfect location to take the weight off the hull, with even a Velcro attached below it to keep a foam strip in place. When pulled apart the uppermost holders close to secure the hull, making for easy hull work, or at the lake, holds the boat securely to trim the sails for current wind conditions. $70 plus shipping, it’s money well spent considering what the boat cost. ...

I bought one of their stands for my DF65 and I’ll agree that it’s well made and definitely worth the price.

I have one for my rg and one for my iom, great stands

If any club could make use of these buoys they are free for collection from Northampton.
They are the old buoys that we replaced at Two Islands RYC so collection could be arranged from Milton Keynes.
They are not damaged, just faded and a bit tatty. Message me if you are interested.

How is the testing going Dave? Original videos looked amazing.

Looks quite something. Worth me learning to sail an r/c to drive one of those. Really neat Dave.

Does it go upwind as well!

Out playing with the big boys. The 1.5 metre sailing with the 6m and A class. A nice top suit breeze at Furzton this morning.
It was so much quicker than the 6’s that even after a minute handicap it was sailing through the fleet .
Sails beautifully, with no vices and flies down wind with no hint of a nose dive.

That’s what you get from one of JL’s designs. You should try one of his AC boats. Now that’s a flyer!
