COVID-19 UPDATE – 29th March 2021

From Monday, 29th March, six people from different households are allowed to meet outside.

On that basis, informal group sailing can resume in the same manner as we were enjoying before the latest lockdown. That is;

  • Informal racing only so no recorded results
  • Sailing will take place on the usual Fridays, Sundays and Tuesdays but all starting at 10.00am (because of the potential pressure on the car park)
  • Well separated groups of 6 must be maintained at all times. Each group should launch from a separate area of the landing area. The usual social distancing should also be maintained between the 6 members of a group.
  • All boats can race as one fleet but skippers should not walk up and down the bank but remain in their groups of 6.

Under the Government’s roadmap for the release from lockdown, the next change in restrictions which may have an impact on the club’s activities will be no earlier than May 17. Guidance on that will be confirmed nearer the time.

Stay safe

Three Rivers Radio Yachting Club is a friendly Club that exists to encourage members to build and race radio-controlled model yachts. The Club races two recognised classes of yacht – the International One Metre and the Marblehead

We also race the Nottingham J Class on Sunday mornings in the summer weed season. At the 2018 AGM, the club approved the adoption of the Dragonflite 95 with the aim that it would provide a fun to sail boat at a lower cost entry to the sport. Both these two boats are sailed on Tuesday mornings by an enthusiastic group of members all year round

If you are interested in radio-controlled yacht racing, come and have a sail with us during our sailing mornings. No experience is required and we will lend you a boat and show you how to sail it. Call us or turn up at the lake and we will make you welcome. You will find contact details and directions to the sailing water at Rickmansworth Aquadrome (Bury Lake) in the main menu above.
