Hello from North East wales, UK!


I’ve only just begun RC sailing after a recent operation left me with a lot of time on my hands. I’ve never sailed before, and get seasick, so RC seemed the best way to get on the water!

I’ve built a Jif65 and although she’s a bit rough around the edges (bin-bags for sails!) she sails a treat on my local reservoir, in fact I’m surprised how quickly these boats go when the water’s flat.

I’m currently building ‘proper’ sails and rigs so I can get more efficiency, esp when traveling into the wind, and when I’ve got a bit more experience, I’d love to build an IOM.

I’m sure to have loads of questions for you over the coming weeks, so you’ll see me around!


BEST WISHES and good windddddddddddd:)

Hi Tony,

I was fortunate to be able to visit Angus Richardson a few times before he died, and I fell in love with Wales. You live in a beautiful place.

Have fun sailing…Bill
