Hi, I've only just found this forum (and website).

I have 2 Footy's, Im not a member of any club, as none seem interested in sailing footys. Im just west of Edinburgh near to Queensferry.

Took both my Footys sailing for the first time last weekend at the pond in Rosyth after a particularly long build-time (first ever RC boats Ive built)

Victory V-12:-



my Micron being rescued after steering-gear failure:-




thankfully my youngest daughter likes getting her feet wet!

if anyone has a footy and would like to initiate some good-natured racing, please get in touch. Im about to build a few more footys for my kids, as a good one can be made for under 30 if you build it yourself (RC gear not included of course).

hopefully back at the pond in Rosyth Sunday morning again. (its nearby and weed-free!!)

Welcome to the forum.

Anyone who knows me, knows what I'm going to say next, build a Wee Nip, they're 70mm long & sail much better for the same cost as your Footy. There is only one in the East, so far, Allan Pollock from Edinburgh mbc, a visit to see him will be worth while, I know he wont be there this w/end but you could contact him through this forum. In the west of the country, they have realy taken off.

At Richmond we have Nip Sunday, the 3rd Sunday of the month, (but not this month because of a bring & buy sale feel free to visit us & make up your own mind.

In the meantime, why not visit my Nip site http://sites.google.com/site/theweenip/

If you need any help, just ask.

Eddie
