The Radio Sailors are very passionate about their sailing, with a full racing programme as well as regular coaching training sessions. The boat of choice is the International One Metre, which is exciting and challenging to sail while still being suitable for novices. Sailing takes place on the Millpond as follows:
Sunday mornings at 10.00 October to April
Tuesday evenings at 18.00 May September
Thursday mornings at 10.00 All year
Special Open Events are held several times a year (details are in the Club Programme) and attract top quality sailors including several from the Ben Ainslie Racing Team. Some Slipper Radio Sailors compete seriously at Regional and National Events, while others prefer to stay local. New Radio Sailors are welcome and also anyone who thinks they might like to try the sport. A visit to one of the sessions listed above is the best starting point, which will usually result in a trial sail. ESSC member Colin Gordon is the Group Training Officer and is also a good initial contact.
