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 try.


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 foreshores.

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.


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

These Travellers events will be open to Laser RC sailors from all clubs.


Entries for the “RC Laser Series Round 3” at Grahamstown Lake, near Medowie are now open, and can be made on the NSW Radio Yachting Assoc web site.
