Remaining model boats on the water that day. Don't get many days when I can film where I get conditions like these. Was a real pleasure to film them.

JOLIE BRISE gaff-rigged cutter - Posted: 6 months ago by Dom of Essential RC
mdlbt.com/29942   >> Permalink
This fantastic model was scratch built by John of the Solent Radio Controlled Model Boat Club. Here it is seen sailing in light winds on Setley Pond in the New Forest, UK.

She took about a year to construct and is now into the third year of sailing. The boat is based on the period 1929/34 when "Bobby" Somerset owned her, he won the Fastnet race twice and finished second once, infact she is the only boat to win the Fastnet three times. She is based on the river Hamble and is owned by Dauntseys school in Wiltshire and is regularly raced by the pupils there. The model is approximately 1:15 scale.

In 2013 the full size Jolie Brise celebrated the centenary anniversary of her construction by the Paumelle yard in Le Havre in 1913. The world famous, gaff-rigged pilot cutter was the last boat to carry the royal mail under sail and has won the Fastnet Race three times, including the inaugural race in 1925. In 2015 and 2016 she was the overall winner of the Tall Ships Races.

Jolie Brise is owned, maintained and sailed by the pupils of Dauntsey's School. For more information about Jolie Brise go to,

Nothing beats, being under sail!
Response by Dave M on the 6 months ago
Nicely trimmed gaff-rigged cutter showing her paces. Good to see a helmsman in attendance adding to the realism
Response by lesliebreame on the 6 months ago

In contrast to all that amazing power stuff below here is a very tranquil and sedate picture of my A class yacht in light breeze at Ilfracombe pond recently. Les Breame
Response by RNinMunich on the 7 months ago
Wonderful 👍 How about some musical underlay - 'I am sailing' Rod Stewart ?? 😉
Ah! Ilfracombe, lovely country. Used to pop down there from Weston Supermare in my youth.

In this follow-up video, Richard, a member of the Offshore Model Racing Association (OMRA) gives me some insight into racing and his boat.

Offshore RC powerboat racing (Southampton, UK) - Posted: 7 months ago by Dom of Essential RC
mdlbt.com/28968   >> Permalink
Have to admit that this is not something I was aware of until very recently...but in my quest to broaden my YouTube channel to all things RC I found the Offshore Model Racing Association (OMRA). I contacted them and they invited me down to their most recent racing event in Southampton. Despite the bumpy conditions there was some close racing and I think I captured the flavour of what it was all about.
Response by BOATSHED on the 7 months ago
What an awesome bit of video. that looks like real fun, wish I could afford to do that. How big are those boats and what engine's are in them?
Response by Dom of Essential RC on the 7 months ago
These E class boats are normally 65" but can go up to 85" (but are apparently rare because they take 2-3 people to launch). Engines in the 65" are typically 30cc Zenoah or similar.
Response by sandkb on the 6 months ago
Awesome racing and great video, Thanks
