We are a sanctioned member (#73) of the AMYA Region 4, Midwest (American Model Yacht Association) Located in Dayton, Ohio
We routinely sail at Jay Lake (Map/directions), part of the Dayton Parks and Recreation system (Wegerzyn Gardens MetroPark), located off Siebenthaler Avenue. We sail radio control model yachts that are registered classes with the American Model Yacht Association. Racing rules for model yachts are the same as the full size boats, which are administered by the US Sailing Federation. Our primary model yacht is the Star 45. Class rules for this one-design ensures all boats have the capability of being competitive, which means it's ultimately up to the skill of skipper to win.
We also have members who sail the EC12, Odom, Soling 1M, J Boat, Victoria, and the Footy. We hope you will come sail with us. On days we are not racing for club points, a spectator might get handed a radio control to sail one of our little boats. Check out the gallery for some photos and use the e-mail address noted below to contact us with any questions.
Our facilities are excellent! Miami Valley Model Yacht Club is right off the highway, very quick and easy to get to and from whether you drive or fly (Dayton airport only 15 miles away). Hotels, restaurants, gas, and all sorts of attractions are only a couple miles apart. We have plenty of parking just steps away from the water. We have a very nice shelter house which is great to eat lunch under or just to escape the sun. In addition, we have a floating dock big enough to have multiple skippers launching and retrieving from at the same time. It even has 2 ramps and is fully wheelchair accessible.
