If you are interested in radio/controlled model sailboats, this is the place to visit. This web site will tell you when and where we sail. Click SCHEDULE for sailing information. The Links/Photos section will give you more information about sailing in general and sailing model sailboats.
We sail four different models, the Star 45, Soling 1 Meter, V-32 and Dragon Force 65. Information on these classes of model sailboats can be found by clicking on CLUB FLEETS. More photos of other fleets will be added this summer.
We are very proud of our participation both in local events and National events. MVMYC has hosted the CR914 National Championship Regatta (NCR), EC12 NCRs (47 boats), Odom NCR, US1M NCRs, numerous Star 45 NCRs & Regional Championships, and the 2016 V-32 NCR. MVMYC is also proud to home base of two Star 45 Nationals Champions, a US1 Meter National Champion, and the 2016 V-32 National Champion.
Come one, Come all. All ages, levels of sailing experience, male / female skippers are welcome. Our current membership has skippers ranging in age from 37 to 80+. We also have a number who have never sailed big boats and are still earning the ropes… and we have two active National Champions. So, weather you are looking for a relaxing group to come sail with, or some cut throat One Design racing, MVMYC is the place to be.
Scheduled Saturday / Sunday event, club members will be happy to hand you their transmitter so you can get the feel for what it is like to sail remotely. Even veteran big-boat skippers are surprised by the similarities and as well as the differences.
When & where do we sail
We currently sail on Saturdays, and Sundays, starting in April and running into October (See SCHEDULE). Scored racing is what keeps skippers coming back, and fun days are relaxing for those that want a more laid-back kind of activity. Rules, tactics, strategy, tuning, construction and rigging are regularly discussed at the pond and presented at our winter meetings.
