AMYA Club #255 Western Reserve Model Yacht Club
Click here to edit your pageClick here to go to your office
Since 2007 - Northeast Ohio, USA


WHO? The Western Reserve Model Yacht Club is a group of model sailing hobbyists, who build, sail and race RC model boats.

WHERE? Northeast Ohio- the Western Reserve was located in the northern part of what is now Ohio, from Lake Erie south to around Akron. We sail at BSA Camp Stigwandish, Madison, OH- about 3 miles off I-90 Exit 212.

WHAT? DO WE DO? We build, sail, and race a variety of model sailboats, bought ready to sail (RTS), used, built as kits or purchased new. Club members race the Victor Model Products Soling 1 Meter- a 40", 10 lb. boat built from a kit, bought used, or ready-built by the factory OR from local builders. Solings are all identical or nearly so, built from the same kit, and under the Soling 1 Meter Class Rules. This makes the racing equal, and fun.

WHEN? Racing is from mid-April through October, BUT we also build boats as a group several Saturdays over the winter months.

WRMYC Build Clinics- Again This Winter!!!

(photo by Larry Lamphier)

How do these "Building Clinics" work??

1. Contact Larry Lamphier for the latest details on the clinics. 440-346-0402

2. Go to Toy N Hobby HQ in Geneva, OH. Tell them you want to build a Soling- they have the kits, and all the supplies.

You can buy what you need in three phases:

- The kit, CA glues, sandpaper, Exacto Knife.

Then in February-

- The servos, small screwdrivers, paint.

Finally, in March-

- The "radio" and receiver, battery pack, and charger.

While you're there- buy a Model Yachting magazine (the issue he has in stock features the Soling).

 2017 Calendar Dates


2017 Building Clinics being planned!! WRMYC will again offer FREE building clinics for you to build YOUR new Soling 1 Meter.

WRMYC experts guide you through your Soling build, and help you toward a strong, fast Soling for next spring and summer. We do all the tricky parts as a group, and you do the painting etc. at home in between sessions.

Our Boats

WRMYC fleet racing uses our Soling 1 Meters.


Soling 1 Meter One-Design- model yachts... the ideal boat for sailors at all levels:

for beginners, the S1M is a cost-effective first boat.

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.

Buy OR Build!! OR Buy AND Build!!

Why not do BOTH??? Buy a used Soling, so you get to sail WHILE you build your Kit!! THEN- sell the original boat- you'll likely get at least as much as you paid, maybe even a few dollars more, if you made improvements.


The club also has a limited number of refurbished Solings for those wanting to sail with us; for available boats: contact:

Commodore Larry Lamphier
