The Gig Harbor Model Yacht Club (GHMYC) was formed in 1982 by RC skippers who had a love for model sailing. They originally started sailing in Gig Harbor, WA, ergo Gig Harbor Model Yacht Club. However, today, due to availability and desirability of sailing sites the club now sails on Surprise Lake, located at Surprise Lake Village. 2800 Queens Way (off Meridian North), Milton, WA. 98354 Directions click here.

The major classes sailed in the club are EC12, ODOM, STAR 45 and and any other sail craft that is RC. At the present time, active boats in the specific classes are 8 EC 12s, 14 ODOMs and 6 Star's.

Here is a map to Surprise Lake.
