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 in fast mode must keep to the slipway side of the Portakabin and should not be in fast mode if the Swans are in the vicinity”.
. 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. However please respect the Swans and do NOT stress them. They live on the Canal you are merely a visitor.
COMMON SENSE must prevail to prevent further collisions or swamping.
