RC Racing

Welcome to Radio Controlled Racing

Beginning the first week after launch, until the ice moves in, KYC runs DragonForce 65 fleet races on Mondays (Start: 1800hrs) and IOM fleet races Wednesday evenings (Start: 1800hrs). Both fleets invite all KYC members to come by and give it a try. Information on boat building, buying, sailing and racing is available through the Canadian Radio Yachting Association website (WWW.CRYA.CA) or by contacting the fleet captains. See you at the start line!

Sailing Instructions

There will be 8 heats (races) in each race night, with a minimum of 3 boats and 3 races to constitute a race night. Racing will be scored in accordance with RRS Appendix A4, Low Point Scoring System and governed by the ISAF 2017-2020 Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS), including Appendix E; Fleet determined Sailing Instructions (SI), Bylaws of the Kingston Yacht Club, the Rules of the International One Metre Class and DragonForce 65 Class as warranted.

Both IOM and DragonForce 65 Fleets will sail their regular scheduled race nights off the breakwall at KYC. There is recognition for the top three racers in each series for both fleets and awards for the top three racers for the overall season in both fleets.
