Since 1983 the Wellington Radio Yacht Club (Inc) (WRYC)has been racing model sailboats locally. Our club is one of many from all across New Zealand that is affiliated to the New Zealand Radio Yachting Association (NZRYA)which in turn is affiliated to Yachting New Zealand (YNZ). Every year National regattas are sailed, inviting Radio Controlled sailors from other areas to join in.
Our club meets to sail, season and weather permitting, every Sunday afternoon throughout the year at about 1:00pm. We alternate our programme on Sundays between racing and Club Days (These are to allow members to tune and practice with their boats). On Race days we schedule in about 7 races and finish up for the day by 4:30pm. The layout of the course marks, rules and the procedure used when racing are identical to those used by sailors of the full-scale sailboats.
The location of our sailing sites alternate between Seaview Marina (Lower Hutt), and Whitby Lake (Paremata).
You are invited to come and visit us. We look forward to handing you a transmitter and showing you what fun it is to sail by radio-control. You may also be interested in an Introductory Brochure outlining the basics of Radio Yachting. This is in .PDF format.
