Regular Club Sailing / Boating

Every Friday – Saul Junction from 1.30pm or Over from mid day until dusk

Every Saturday afternoon at Gloucester Docks….from 1pm

Every Sunday – Over is available

Over is always available but maintenance on a Wednesday must take preference.

Parking on the slipway area at Over is for Blue Badge holders only. Only exception is for quick loading / unloading.

Micro Magic sailing at Over does not stop you sailing your motor boats. Plenty of room for all and a cup of tea as well.

MM racing finishes at 3.15 unless wind, rain, leaves, weeds dictate. Only 7 races are required. Over is available on the remaining half mile of water.

Any changes to these days are noted in the calendar above

If you become locked in at Over a key is available from Dave at the Wharf House

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.
