Henri-Lloyd - For the Obsessed
RG65

RG65

The affordable & available ARTS (almost ready to sail) radio controlled racing yacht. The RG65 is a development class for 65cm long radio controlled yachts which means that anything not mentioned in the rules is allowed. The simple rules are designed to encourage people to try new ideas at a modest cost. The Dragon Force 65 is a separate class but also measures as an RG65 and is eligible to race in RG65 events.
