Welcome to the Website of The

Rochester Area Model Yachting Association.

Welcome to the website of the Rochester Area Model Yachting Association (RAMYA), which is Club #193 of the American Model Yachting Association.  RAMYA serves the region around Rochester, New York. In these pages, you will find information about sailing and racing radio-controlled model sailboats at local-area ponds. 

Our members have varying levels of experience and expertise. All of us enjoy the outdoors, the fun of watching the wind push the boats, and participating with others in the sport we love.  We invite interested parties to join us for an afternoon's sailing experience, or to join us as a member to become involved in this exciting sport.  For more information about the club, click on "About Us" in the left-side navigation panel.  You may also search for information in the other web pages, and read more about radio-controlled sailing.  (Please see a more complete description of the pages below.)  We look forward to meeting you.

Our new class of racing boat will be introduced soon.
It is a smaller and less expensive boat than our other classes
and will be the boat recommended for those who wish to enter
this hobby and have little experience building and racing.
