8/23/16: Tuesday Aug 23 Report:

Light air you say?? For the first time, in a long time, racing was cut short Tuesday as a result of light air which became no air. Not only was the air light, it was from the NW, where we cannot get a clean windward first leg (unless we were to start out in the middle of the lake.)

There were quite a few who had boat issues and DNFs/ DNS' as a result of losing control when a weed snagged on the rudder. When there IS wind, these will slow down the boat- when there is almost no wind, the boat stops, requiring rowboat rescue.

Winner?? Bob Green!! Bob won his first WRMYC event, scoring an average of just 3.20. In second was Tom Schreiber, then Steve Sears, just ahead of Bob Schuster on the tiebreaker of "most firsts"; Steve finishing only ONE racing point ahead of Bob. Worthy of note: Dan Jarold placed seventh but on another tiebreaker with Dave Steger. Check the standings- it WAS close racing, even if slow racing!!


1..B. Green.....3.20

2..T. Schreiber.4.17

3..S. Sears.....4.33 Most 1s

4..B. Schuster..4.33

5..M. Wyatt.....4.83

6..D. Steger....5.00 Most 2s

7..D. Jarold....5.00

8..W. Forbes....6.00

9..J. Hogan.....7.33

10.N. Lessick..11.00


Demonstration Sail!! Friday evening, August 26, 5:30 PM. WRMYC sailors will convene at The Sailing Center in Fairport Harbor, OH. Address: 1009 High Street, Fairport Harbor, OH 44077.

Bring your Soling, plus any other RC boats you want, and the spouse- If the wind is agreeable and we can manage getting some marks out, we will do some some off-the-record racing.

I'm told free beer and food for purchase will be available. Make plans to attend.

Directions: Exit OH Rt. 2 at "Painesville, Fairport Harbor" exit and head North toward FH on Richmond St.. Richmond turns into High St.; follow High St. across the river, and across the RR tracks, continuing on High to where it turns into Water St.; just after Water St. on the left is The Sailing Center.

For specific questions, please contact Jim Hogan or Tom Schreiber.


8/16/16:Tuesday 8/16/16 Report

A terrible forecast, winds 18+, rain, caused a lot of "the usuals" to stay home. But, true to form, six of us showed up to find a break in the rain, and despite a few sprinkles- got in 9 races in shifty winds from the SW at about 8 MPH. Mike Wyatt burned up a servo in practice, and so did not compete- leaving 5 boats. Then Tom Schreiber had a minor breakdown, as did Jim Hogan as the evening went on. Finally, the real rain came in, and we called it a night, with three boats left on the water.

Courses were: S/F- 4 - 6 and Finish.

Mark Locations

Wayne Forbes showed the way again- winning 4 of the 9 completed races. In Second, was Steve Sears, followed by Bob Schuster in third.

1.W. Forbes........... 1.89

2.S. Sears............ 2.33

3.B. Schuster......... 2.67

4.T. Schreiber........ 4.44

5.J. Hogan............ 5.33


8/13/16: Saturday 8/13/16 Report

Despite a rainy forecast, we met, we sailed, and got in all races, without any rain. The wind was blowing an average 12- with puffs to 16 MPH from the SW, with shifts every 2 -3 minutes. And it was the highest wind we have had thus far in 2016. The sailors who had not experienced the fun of a Soling surfing off the wind got a taste of it today!! But, there was little if any breakage, showing that the boats are generally sound.

In Gold Fleet, Wayne Forbes sailed brilliantly, scoring 6 bullets, 3- 2's and a 3 counted after discards. Mike Wyatt was a distant 2nd, with 22 points, followed by Steve Sears at 22.

In Silver, Bob Green ran away with the honors, scoring a net of only 10 points.

One of the best Soling shots-

from the cover of Model Yachting

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 yachts, or any design fitting the AMYA "Traditional Marblehead" Division of the Vintage Model Yacht Group,

see AMYA:

Soling 1 Meter (l), 50/800 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

(440) 352- 6349



Soling 1 Meter #2125: $350. Contact Larry: 440-352-6349
