COVID-19 UPDATE – 5th November 2020

Very sadly we have now started a new national lockdown. This is due to end on 2nd December but it is not clear what it will happen thereafter. Regrettably, this means that the informal group sailing that we currently enjoy on Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday mornings will not be possible until 2rd December at the earliest.

However, there is a little bit of good news. Under the lockdown rules this time round, a single individual is allowed to meet one other person from another household in a public place for the purposes of recreation. On that basis, it does appear that one skipper can arrange to meet with one other skipper at the Aquadrome and go sailing together as a pair.

If skippers do decide to take advantage of this, please remember that you can go any time that the Aquadrome is open – you are not confined to the traditional club racing times. We should try to avoid lots of skippers at the lakeside at the same time if possible. In any event, we must follow the lockdown rules (so no mixing between pairs!) and there should only be two boats on the water at any time.

Further updates will follow as and when anything changes and, in particular, when it is clear what will happen when the current lockdown ends.

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.
