Not RC but on topic as it shows how its done on the real ship

I like the part about the low wind tack „only“ taking 5 minutes to complete now Image doing that ina confined waterway with a couple of dozen other ships in a similar evolution!

Just discovered this beautiful RC model of the Stad Amsterdam. Looks like the operator knows the basics of sailing a square rigger !

Sorry guys I posted this same video about 5 years ago but it is still worth watching again. Anybody out there working on a build ? I have just started a clipper 4 ft in length. Following the construction techniques of Nev Wade.

Nev's newest creation just launched and on trials. The Archibald Russell clipper looking really sharp on the water with Nev demonstrating his skill at handling a square rigger. She can really move !
