Miami Valley Model Yacht Club

Dayton Ohio RC Sailboat

Star 45 Sailboats at our sailing pond in Dayton, OH

We hope you will come sail with us. Visit the CLUB FLEETS page for information about the various boats we sail. We sail every Wednesday and most Sunday afternoon when the weather cooperates. Please see the CALENDAR/SCHEDULE for date, times and a complete list of events. Our sailing pond is in Deer Meadow Park, 4321 Pinnacle Road, Moraine, OH.

The facilities at Deer Meadow Park are excellent! The park has provided a floating dock big enough to have multiple skippers launching and retrieving at the same time. We also have a large sun shelter with picnic tables, which is great to eat lunch under or just to escape the sun. The park has other facilities for the rest of the family to use while you sail with us, including a skate park, picnic shelters, volleyball, walking path, disc golf course, and PAR exercise system.

We are American Model Yacht Association (AMYA) sanctioned Club #73 of the AMYA Region 4, Midwest Located in Dayton, Ohio

We sail radio control model Sailboats 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. With few of the rules being modified for our small size boats.

We have been sailing Star 45 and Soling 1 Meter sailboats for years. In 2106 we added the V-32, and Dragon Force 65 boats. The Dragon Flite 95 sailboat was first sailed here in 2017. This gives new skippers a wide range of choices in size, performance, and cost. Class rules for each one-design class ensures all boats perform the same, which means the skippers' skill determines the winner. Some club members also own and sail other boats such as the EC12, ODOM, J Boat, Victoria, and Footy. There are also two tugboats that are used to retrieve wayward sailboats.
