9/10/16 Saturday Series Results 9/10

(Story by Steve Sears- RD for 9/10) I had the pleasure of being the Race Director (RD) for today’s racing. We had great, sunny weather with constant wind that ranged from 5 knots to the high teens. The gusty winds broke weeds free from the bank, but the sailors did a great job of avoiding them. We had to use three different starting lines to avoid the weed islands!!

The racing was great! The fleet was mixed up with lots of different winners throughout the day. Dave Steger ended up winning the day with a narrow 2 point margin over Mike Wyatt on racing points, which worked out to 6 points after discards. Both of these guys had trouble at various points in the races and worked their way back to the front. It just goes to show that these races are never over until the finish!

While I was RD, I had the opportunity to take a bunch of pictures of today’s racing. I was really happy with the way they came out and uploaded 195 photos to my webserver. You can check them out at

AND.. a further note from the scorekeeper: We have a new leader in the Fall Series/ Gold Fleet!! Steve Sears moves into a tie on points with Mike Wyatt for the lead at 17 pts. Even taking the discard (happens after next outing) the two would still be tied, with Sears leading on the tiebreaker. Congratulations, Steve!!

1/ RD....Steve Sears

1..Dave Steger.........21

2..Mike Wyatt...........27

3..Tom Schreiber......29 Tiebreaker Most 1s

4..Wayne Forbes...... 29

5..Bob Schuster........ 33

6..Doug Rieger......... 56

7..Larry Lamphier.......72

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!!
Why not do BOTH??? Buy a used Soling, so you get to sail WHILE you build your Kit!! The first boat is a "guide" as you build the second boat.
