New Club promoting RC Lasers on Central Coast
Following the great success
of a one day informal regatta for RC Lasers recently held at Summerland Point
on Lake Macquarie NSW, and participation in the subsequent RC promotion day at
Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club, Brian Lindsay has now formed the “NorthLakes
Radio Sailing” club to race and promote the class on the Central Coast.
The Club is already
affiliated with the NSW Radio Sailing Association, has obtained an electric
powered rescue boat, and course marks; and soon plans to start regular racing
at Tom Burke Reserve, Lake
Munmorah on Saturdays.
The NLRS club is very keen to
attract new competitors to the sport, and is especially grateful to the RC
Laser distributor “Radio Sailing” for the loan of a demo boat for newcomers to
NLRS is also organising a
Travellers series of four events to be held at various locations between Sydney and Newcastle.
The first of these will be
run by the NorthLakes Club at
Raffertys Resort, Cams Wharf,
Lake Macquarie on Sunday July 31st.
The Resort provides a
stunning location for the event. Sailing will be from a sandy beach, with lawn
It is suggested that skippers
could make this a great weekend by booking overnight accommodation at one of
the luxurious cottages in the complex; enjoying the excellent Al Lago restaurant;
and swimming pool.

for Dobroyd Point, Sydney on August 21st;
Grahamstown Lake, near Medowie on September 25th;
and Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club ( date to be confirmed.)

be open to Laser RC sailors from all clubs.
