In line with government advice and just plain common sense, we would like to remind everyone that all racing is cancelled until further notice.

It may seem like a nice idea to just go and stand 6 feet apart and sail around some buoys, but it would be hard to justify that it was not a meeting of more than 2, or that it was exercise (although definitely , under normal circumstances, good for well being). But remember – a key point about this social distancing and all the other restrictions is to slow down infection rates to avoid the frontline NHS and other essential services from being overwhelmed by the high number of infected people who become very seriously ill. Social distancing is not only about avoiding being infected oneself, it is to reduce the chance that you may unwittingly infect others, especially any at high risk.

We can look forward to the time when we can start again, with a fleet of beautifully maintained and polished boats, and Hugh has suggested we have a picnic to celebrate the event. A few bottles of bubbly would do, but I am sure we could have a (very) long coffee/lunch break!

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.
