Welcome to Alberton Radio Sailing Club’s blog/site. Alberton Radio Sailing Club is a new model yacht sailing club based at Jackson Dam in Brackenhurst, Alberton, Johannesburg.
Competitive Radio Sailing involves racing model yachts controlled by a 2 channel radio. The yachts are equipped with a radio receiver controlling the rudder and sails. The skippers stand on the shore and control their yachts (sails, rudder, trimming) using a radio transmitter. The yachts are driven forward only by the wind – no engines are allowed.
We race mainly the Hurricane 1000 by Beili, but have plans to race IOM’s as well. That said all radio controlled yachts are welcome. We will work out a handicap rating for your boat…
