J class boats

In 2020 we saw an interesting development with one semi scale 48inch Nottingham J class appear and sail regularly. Since then there have been some interesting discussions around the J class RC boats. In late 2020 an enterprising group of 5 club members decided to build 5 Lionheart J class 60 inch models and while it is a long term project for all of the builders at least 3 boats are within a few months of being on the water. As well we have just learnt that there are 5 new 48 inch Nottingham J class boats in build or on order. To date we know of 6 Nottingham 48s, 5 Lionheart 60 inch, plus a couple of historic boats including K class.

GREAT NEWS - RC sailing has restarted from 29 March with a few simple limitations. The rule of 6 is the most pertinent.
