Alton Radio Controlled Sailing Club yesterday held an informal day with the forecast of 40mph wind gusts. Most members chose "B" rigs with a couple deciding to hang onto "A's" until the wind arrived. The wind and rain eventually did come, but much later in the day after were long gone and tucked with a large G&T (well I was!). As it was an informal day, a blind eye was turned to A LOT of minor rule infringements, like line jumping and buoy clipping which added to the fun of keeping the fleet close together with many individual duels going on. Loads of laughter and micky taking made for a great day with a great wind and flat water. Please come and say hello on our Facebook page and even come and have a sail with us if you can. As a club we fully adhere to the MYA guidelines and have all Covid measures in place to keep our members and guests as safe as it is possible. More photos and media of our members are on our page. Stay safe folks! ... See MoreSee Less

Hoping that one of you recognises this design.
A bit of a restoration project, bought for next to nothing on eBay. Unfortunately there is no registration number on it, obviously an early design, glass fibre( chopped strand mat ) and flat deck. The forward swept fin and short chine at the stern should give a clue, as I know there were a couple of Chris Dicks with a similar fin layout.

247?

Not s Chris dicks design. Looks like a John Taylor design

Looks like a Parasite by John Taylor

Paracite by John Taylor.

Thanks chaps, certainly looks right to me, just a bit different. Only really bought it as I needed a cheap winch, hey, the lead is worth more than I paid for it!

We had many happy raced with our Parasites here at Fleetwood. We had 2 in the to p 10 in the 1994 National s😊

I really enjoy the knowledge shared by members. Keep smiling and stay safe.

Looks a bit like a gadget widget from memory

Well done Pepe

I've just asked Pepe what the order book looks like - I'd guess 18 months at least. Lovely boat
