Comming up straight after next lockdown release step, Classic &Vintage Vane M's at Fleetwood. Racing Marbleheads from the 1930's through to the 1980's.

Nigel Brown, lets steal some ideas from these pictures....

K numbers would look authentic though

**Alton Radio Controlled Sailing Club** held its normal Saturday meeting yesterday in very gusty conditions. Despite the dull conditions and low temperature, 10 of us headed out in what would prove to be very challenging conditions. The result made for some very exciting sailing and spectacular wipe outs! Racing was as always tight with some very close finishes and only seconds separating the mixed fleet of DF65 + 95's. Guests and visitors are always welcome to come have a go or mix it up with our members. If you would like to come and play please see our Facebook page for contact and club information. ...

Awesome photos. Congratulations! 👌

He's a bit good Pedro Machado. We're very lucky to have Ronnie Bird at Alton.

Very good work! A true artist.

Such fantastic pics...

Competing in handicap event against R10R's and Marbleheads starting this race off 150 secs after 6 races (1st race started off scratch). The power of this boat is impressive and has the ability to recover from operator errors ie. poor execution of a tack at 4mins20secs. 😆 ... See MoreSee Less

That looks like a young John Tushingham in the background of photos 1 & 2. 👍🇦🇺

Did anyone see the brief clip on North West News last night of the IOMs racing, then Prince Phillip chatting to Brad Gibson?
