Model Yacht Racing

951083 orig

The Dragon Flite 95 was originally designed by John Tushingham whose brother Roger has been a member of this club for many years. The DF 95 is a very simple and responsive yacht to sail and there are now nearly 7000 of them being raced worldwide.

A group of us decided two years ago that it would be nice to get a few of them and race them down at Batson during the long winter months. The yachts themselves are bought as a kit and take about five hours to put together, they have two servos, one controls the rudder and the other the sails.

Our group has now expanded to 26 yachts and racing them in between the pontoons at Batson has proved to be both fun and exciting.

There is a lot of info on the web for those interested in joining us so just type in Dragon Flite 95 and have a browse and if you want to see them in action pop down to Batson on or about high water on a Sunday.
