"Windling"

         What is "Windling" you may ask??

   

Windling is a term that has been around Model Yacht Sailing for years, the word was `created’ by a Sailor fed up at the time in his sailing club with the poor sportsmanship, argumentative attitude and outbursts of language and bad behavior of a great many  Club and (International Classes) model yachtsmen. who just want to race very seriously all the time, whereas some sailors prefer to construct, race for fun and sail all types of craft and enjoy

"Just Playing Boats"

 

       

Model of the CURLIP by Bernard Spells

 Windling is social sailing, the model sailboat equivalent of "Competitive Cruising", where adult men build all sorts of boats and gather to enjoy each other's company and sail their sailboats in a relaxing atmosphere.

There is no room for really serious competitive stuff when Windlers sail and even on occasional `regatta days’, apparent `races’ are no more than fast cruise style rounding's of the buoys, no calls, no shouting for buoy room, no anger, no protests or claims that a boat has `touched the buoy’, it is all laid back fun sailing, both peaceful and relaxing. There is no quoting and arguing of rules either because there are no rules in Windling

If a sailor just happens to "Win a Competitive Cruise " The prize is usually a "Well Done". or if it's a special event maybe a Boiled Lolly or in best case a Chocolate if its a really special event

They take the time to greet and help each other as they share the Lake  with Ducks, Swans, Pelicans and maybe diving Cormorant,or Dolphins

To help in the recovery, or repair of others boats that may have problems

Most Importantly: Help newcomers to the hobby to learn about boat building and to help teach them to Sail r/c Sailboats, talk to pond side passersby who show an interest, have a cup of tea or two, share a joke or three..

To say good bye and reflect on the days events before they leave the lake to go home
