Please remember the following points of sailing etiquette and safety.
Always bring and use your frequency peg and aerial protector when sailing.
Take your frequency peg off the frequency board when you switch the TX off, and take it home again!
Limit your time on the water to a half hour session, then check if others would like to use that frequency.
The above points do not apply to 2.4 GHz transmitters.
Weil’s disease – after boating, be safe, clean your hands with an antibacterial wash. Carry some with you.
Retrieving models from far side bank following breakdown.
You MUST always be accompanied by another person and be fully aware of the hazards
Please use the Club Pole to manoeuvre the model to a safe location
Please note this land is private and do NOT damage trees and plant growth
All fast electrics when used at full speed must keep beyond the WHITE BUOY (at the rear of the canal boat Mr Maysey). Slow boats must turn around at the GREEN BUOY which is situated near the bow of Mr Maysey. However should there be no slow boats sailing then the fast boats can use the whole of the canal as can the slower ones should there be no fast boats being used.
COMMON SENSE must prevail to prevent further collisions or swamping.
