The Venue – Mawson Lakes Model Yacht Club (MLMYC) is one of the hidden gems of radio yachting in Australia. Located near Salisbury in the northern suburbs of Adelaide, it is one of Australia’s largest radio yachting clubs and yet one of the least known. We race two classes of RC yachts at the club, the locally developed Mawson Lakes 45 (ML45) and the RC Laser, and while we may not be the fastest sailors in the country we may be the happiest. The club encourages friendship and fun ahead of competitiveness, and it has been a winning formula for developing a large membership.
The Facilities – MLMYC has excellent facilities. The large lake has a cement walking path around its perimeter. There is a well-equipped boat shed with room for eating and conversing and a very practical boat ramp for easy launching of model yachts.
The People – We have an enthusiastic club executive and RC Laser sub-committee who are committed to running this event. We also have a couple of great radio controlled yachting characters in Johno Johnson (ARCYRC, SA) and Mario Gulic (PLRMYC, Vic) officiating for the titles, and they will bring great experience to ensure that the event runs smoothly.
The Titles - The National Titles will run over four days from Friday September 28th to Monday October 1st. Friday will be a practice day and will include many members of MLMYC, and it will be followed by three days of racing. We are expecting a fleet of 45 boats and we consider that with A, B and C fleets we will need three days to complete sufficient races.
The Extras - The titles will feature a number of innovations. As part of your $75 registration fee you will receive $20 worth of tickets in a raffle for an RC Laser used only at the Championship of Nations, complete with new B rig and boat bag. The 2018 national champion will also receive a similar prize. The event dinner will be held on Sunday evening and will be an optional extra for contestants. The RC Laser raffle will be drawn at the dinner.
RC Laser National Titles Update
August 2018 .....
The preparation for the RC Laser National Titles is proceeding at pace. The City of Salisbury Grant has enabled us to upgrade our marquee, and along with further investment from our Club has allowed improvment to the electrically powered recovery boat and to build new specially designed racing buoys. All these changes will significantly improve the model yachting experience for all our competitors in late September and the club generally.
The club raffle to help finance the national titles is proving a huge success. It's already helped finance a number of initiatives including the first prize for the titles of a CON17 RC Laser. Both our club members and the interstate RC Laser clubs have been terrific in their support of this raffle, and we now expect tickets to sell out.
The National Titles organising committee of Adrian Heard, Bob Whitehead and crew continue to be busy arranging various aspects of the event.
The registration form for the National Titles is now available on our club website, and we encourage all of you who are interested in the event to register sooner rather than later. As soon as you register Chris Levi the Event Accountant will issue an invoice and start the formal registration process. The club website can be found on mawsonlakesmyc.com
The notice of race for the National Titles is also available at the bottom of this document.
