Dear Visitor/TRSC Member


It is a great pleasure to welcome you here at The Lakes.  We hope you will come back again and decide to join our club.


You will find our members friendly and helpful.  Some will offer you a sail with their yachts.  Don’t hesitate to take up the offer.  Radio-controlled sailing is a fascinating pastime which can even become addictive!


There are just a few things we would like you to be aware of:

  1. It’s a sport and we do it for fun, which isn’t to say we aren’t competitive but, just like other sports, “What happens on the field stays on the field”.  Even the best and most experienced of us make mistakes so a quick “sorry” and a penalty turn is all that is required.
  2. We all try to sail according to the official International Sailing Federation Racing Rules of Sailing.  These are not difficult and you are encouraged to become familiar with them.  The yachts are quite fragile.  If everyone obeys the rules the chances of damage are minimised.
  3. One of our senior members is the RO (Race Officer) each Saturday.  He or she controls proceedings entirely and has the power to disqualify members for bad behaviour and language.
  4. Our club structure is rather informal but we are affiliated to the NZ Radio Yachting Association.  The TRSC subscription is $25.00, NZRYA levy is $10  plus $1.00 for each boat you register.  Club and NZRYA membership is 1 October  - 30 September.
  5. TRSC holds regattas involving outside sailors from time to time.  These call for some input from club members and everyone does their share.
  6. If you decide to join up, an application form is attached.  Please give this to Richard McNeilly, Gary Denniston or Ken Fox with either a cheque, direct bank deposit or post it to the address shown.

Welcome again, please come back and don’t hesitate to approach any of our members for advice or encouragement.
