    Sail numbers are self adhesive vinyl and are easy to apply. Some do use ink marker pens and stencil them on but they don't look as good. There is guidance to correct number positions here:

    The reasons for Chew Valley Lake S.C, preferring the DF95 are very simple. 1. Costs being significantly cheaper than other RC yachts like Marbleheads and IOM's. 2. Hull length of 95cm would cope better with the waves we get at Chew than the DragonForce 65 would. 3. Strict one design racing where its the skippers performance that counts.

    Contact me on here when you are down in Bath next and we can arrange for you to visit as a guest providing the covid restrictions allow. We sail on Wednesday and Thursday mornings, and at weekends.

    Electric powered boats are not strictly prohibited at Chew Valley Lake as the pike fishermen use them as bait boats. At Chew Valley Lake Sailing Club, model boating is primarily aimed at sailing yachts, preferably the Dragonflite95 class.

    Ideally you should be a member to sail at Chew Valley Lake Sailing Club. If you only sail radio controlled boats, ideally DragonFlite95, you can join as a social member. Further details available from the Membership Secretary https://www.chewvalleysailing.org.uk/join-cvlsc/
