Michigan Model Yacht Clubs


For those who want the thrill of sailing, without actually being on the water, lower Michigan has a number of clubs which cater to the remote-control sailor. Racing is the name of the game and model yachters are very versed in the rules, techniques, and technology of racing. The boats that are used conform to various one-design standards, which means that similar boats compete against eachother with the skill of the racer (and quality of the assembly) being determinants of success. Costs for a radio-controlled entry boat (i.e. a Victoria Class boat) can be a low as a couple hundred dollars. If you are looking for an activity which encompasses boat building, learning sailing skills and competition, this may be the ticket. Clubs are welcoming to new members. Why not stop by and observe at a pond near you?
