CMYC EC12 group
Welcome to the “CMYC EC12 Group”. Meeting every 1st Sunday of the month, for some EC12 only fleet racing with no handicaps. So if you have a EC12 yacht come on down to Lake Victoria and join us for a 4 round series.
Everyone is welcome to come down and watch. After you see the action you may even want to find out how to get your hands on a “Rolls Royce’s” for yourself, just ask the sailors down there they will be happy to help.
On Sunday 7th April was the start of what is going to be an ongoing 1st Sunday of every month EC12 only day of sailing. This event is being run under the umbrella of the Christchurch Model Yacht Club however non club members are more than welcome to participate as guests. The sailing is on Lake Victoria an ideal lake for these very impressive radio controlled yachts, it is also here where all facilities and equipment required for sailing is available for the EC12 fleet to use.
The inaugural day saw 9 boats/skippers line up on and in what was essentially a cold and at times blustery southerly wind. The racing in all heats was close with as can be seen from the results with a spread of winners amongst the fleet. It was interesting to note that the time differences between 1st and last placings was not great showing to all there the benefits of a One Design Class where ALL boats irrespective age can be and are competitive. An enjoyable days sailing was had by all and it is with anticipation that we look forward to the next.
