LETTER: Model yachts in the park

On Saturday and Sunday, April 25 and 26, Eastbourne and District Model Yacht Club is hosting the Model Yacht Association International One Metre Veterans Championship 2015.

To date 41 skippers from across the country have entered this event including many of the most experienced model yacht sailors in the country, several of whom have represented the country in various events across the world.

The Championship starts at 10am on Saturday and will finish at about 4pm on Sunday.

The Model Yacht Club has been located in Princes Park since 1927 and has hosted many Championships since then. The club was chosen to host the Model Yacht Association Centenary event in 2011 – a rare honour indeed.
