Northern Series and TTs how to qualify.

Where events are marked as  Northern District (TT) Event and TT then the results are also fed into the National RC Laser series called the TTs.  

Association membership is required for a TT result to be entered into the National Series, where 3 TT results need to be recorded to qualify, but we are fortunate that in the North West we have four TTs so we can qualify locally. 

If you are not a member of the RC Laser Association then your Northern Series results are not affected and your results count towards the ND series result.

What is an RC Laser a 1/4 size semi - scale model of the real thing with a real performance : 
Boats are one design all the same including the sails ; its down to the skippers skill.
Not tried RC Laser sailing come along and have a go at a North West Event

Clubs in the Northwest that have loan boats to try are :-
Burwain SC   (2 boats)
West Lancs YC
Fleetwood MY&PBC
Delph Sailing Club
