- GREAT COMARADERIE AND SERIOUS FUN
What's in the Bag:
Most of the boats that have come into NZ are of what we are now calling the "Kiwi Kit".
Included in this configuration is:
Boat, rudder and keel
3 Rigs - A,B and C (This includes 3 Sails, A mast, B mast and a long and short boom)
Radio Transmitter and Receiver
This should be all you would need to get sailing at any regatta.
Add a D Sail for very heavy weather. (This fits on the B mast and short boom)
Leave out the Radio Gear and source your own
Any combination - see the Shop at the www.radiosail.com.au site.
Feel free to contact us to disuss the right options for you.
Boats for NZ are bought through Australia and a Kiwi Kit delivered with all taxes paid should cost about $1,450 NZD.
This is very competitive when you consider the only other One Design RC yacht option is the Electron coming in at over $7,000 NZD
We are happy to arrange delivery of your boat and manage the payment to Australia on your behalf via our Paypal account.

Congratulations to Scott Mitchell for becoming the inaugural South Australian RC Laser champion, to Scott Fleming for coming second (on count-back) and to Andrew Reid for taking third place. See the full report from Adrian Heard here.
