4/26/16: Tuesday #1 Story

We came , we sailed, we were cold.

The day was overcast with a patchy 3 to 5 knot breeze from the north/northeast. Five skippers and a guest, Jake, launched their boats for the inaugural start of the weekday, Tuesday, racing series.

With so few boats there was plenty of room and the start line. The course was aaaahhhh , different. (3 marks to port (left side) and 1 to starboard (right side).

Besides being chilled all seemed to enjoy themselves enough that after the last race was finished, some of the sailors did another one for the fun of it.

4/25/16 CORRECTED RESULTS based on Gold/ Silver assignments

It really has happened! The 2016 WRMYC Soling 1 Meter racing season is under way!

We welcome all our readers and again plan to keep this site updated each time the club meets so you can follow us throughout the season.

Make no bones about, It is just spring in northeastern Ohio. The day was as close to being cold as one can get with the temperature hovering in the low forties with a somewhat steady 3 to 5 knot breeze from the northwest. The forecast mentioned a bright sunny day with cool temperatures. The bright sunshine didn't arrive until most had packed their cars and headed for home to thaw out man and boat.

We are excited to welcome four new skippers to the group. All come to us with sailing backgrounds. Once they "get-out-of-the-boat" they will be a force to reckon with. ("Get-out-of-the-boat" refers to sailors of full size boats using all of their senses to understand how the boat is reacting to the current sailing conditions. When sailing RC models, the only sense you have available is line-of-sight.)

Ten skippers and several visitors were on hand for the racing. The heats were windward-leeward legs lasting approximately 4 minutes. All 12 heats were completed.

Tuesday racing/practices start this coming week, 4-26-16, and all are excited to get started.

Our Boats
WRMYC fleet racing uses our Soling 1 Meters.

Soling 1 Meter One-Design- model yachts... The most-sailed RC boat on the planet!! The Soling 1 Meter (S1M) is the ideal boat for sailors at all levels: for beginners, the S1M is a cost-effective first boat ($ 350 used to about $ 500 built by yourself as new); for modelers, the S1M Kit is a straightforward (but not easy) build; ... for seasoned sailors the S1M is challenging to tune, and offers competition at every level- local, Regional, and National. Since all boats come from the same Kit, it is very competitive.

----------------

Plus- on an informal basis, we sail two Classes of 50/800-- 50 inch boats, having 800 sq. in. of sail area. These can be AMYA Soling 50 One-Design Class yachts, or any design fitting the AMYA "Vintage Marblehead" Class.


Soling 1 Meter (L), 50/800 Class yachts: Vintage Marblehead (C), Soling 50 (R)

 Buy OR Build!! OR Buy AND Build!!

WRMYC Used Soling Program

Many enjoy building a Soling Kit.

But, some don't have the time or inclination to build. so...WRMYC has a program for selling used Soling 1 Meters refurbished for functionality by WRMYC racers.

The WRMYC Used Boat program is designed for building our club's membership only. Therefore, these club-owned boats are available ONLY to prospective active Members of our club, approved by the Commodore. Sorry, they are NOT available to anyone else.

Why not do BOTH??? Buy a used Soling, so you get to sail WHILE you build your Kit- with the buyback option you get 100% of the money spent on the used boat back!!

For details: contact:

Commodore Larry Lamphier
