About Westhaven Radio Sailing

Westhaven Radio Sailing Club is not about winning at all cost, it's all about the joy of sailing and the smiles. If this is what you are looking for, come sailing with us. 

An ideal first boat:

One of the most popular types of boats sailed is the International One Metre (IOM). IOMs are created according to what sailors call a ‘box rule’. This means that its owner can create the boat in any way they want, but its length, height and weight must be within set parameters. The result is the ability for skippers to experiment with different ideas, and fine tune their boats to get the very best race performance. 

One for the pro racers:

At 1.35m long, the Marblehead is one of the larger radio classes, and it’s also one of the fastest classes around. Marblehead are recommended for experienced sailors, who can think quickly and push the limits of their ability on the race course, testing their race tactics and strategy, and the ability of their boats to respond and perform.
