Bough Beech SC’s Open Icicle Series Day 3

After a boisterous opening to the Icicle, we have had two, mostly fine Sundays of light and variable westerlies which, because of the orientation of Bough Beech reservoir, is trickier for race teams and competitors alike. The length of windward legs is constrained, and a low sun directly in line with a crowded start line is a RO's nightmare. However all six planned races have been completed. 16th January was particularly trying with racing postponed until a light breeze dispersed [...]

Radio Controlled Yacht Racing at Bough Beech

The RC yacht group was formed in 2019, in the late summer before Covid struck. At the time we had 14 members, during restrictions we lost 6 members which reduced us to a hard core of 8. Right from the beginning we chose to race a one design class of Dragon Flyte (DF) 95s, this being suitable for our conditions on the lee shore of the reservoir. The races are properly run to established rules on courses set out each [...]
