Latest: Saturday July 23 Results ("News")

Visitors are always welcome. The club holds Open Houses at our pond(s) monthly, when Guests can bring ANY RC sailing model and sail. See the Calendar of Events section for Open House dates and locations.

You are also welcome to race with the club. For new sailors, we often invoke the "New Guy Rules"- new sailors always have the right of way (so you don't have to know the Racing Rules).

Please contact Commodore Larry Lamphier (440-352- 6349) or

Vice Commodore Wayne Forbes (440- 639- 1085) for a loaner Soling unless you have your own.

Saturday, July 23 Race Report- Race Date 1 of Fall Saturday Series

HOT Day!!! Close to 90, and very light air. Great turnout though of 11 Gold Fleet and three Silver. RD Dave Karpuszka kept the program moving, and still... we could only get in 9 Heats before THE Heat got to us, and we all retired to the relative cool of the covered patio at Joey's in Madison. There, we had a nice lunch, followed by a great ice cream "social" at Darlene and Tom Schreibers, followed by the awards for our Saturday Spring Series.

Also at the meeting, new Members Bob Green, Doug Rieger, Dave Steger, Steve Sears, and Bob Valentine were all voted into the club- WELCOME guys!! Club Roster is now at 25 Members.

Tuesday July 19 Report:

Truly a nice night tonight, moderate temperature of about 75 degrees and dropping, with winds from the Northeast at an average of 4- 5 MPH.

It was great to have Darlene Schreiber back, keeping scores.

In the racing, courses were generally S- 1- 5- F, or S- 1- 5- 1- 5- F.

"X" and the northernmost S/F buoy were missing.

With the NE wind, it was very hard to set an opening leg to windward, so getting to Mark 1 in good position was about a good start, pointing high, and keeping boat speed up. The reaches saw some place-changes, due mostly to several of the boats consistently sailing above the rhumbline early in the leg, only to lose a place at the end of the leg as the boats at/below the rhumbline came up fast to Mark 5.

The first leg w/ tacking ended up being on the short 5 to Finish leg, and then really only 2 tacks were needed to lay the line.

Dave Steger did it again- scoring an average of just 2.08, and having a season (so far) record 8 wins of 12 Heats. He got consistent decent starts, and was generally upwind of most of the fleet on first legs of the courses, more consistently than the others- hence his good results. In second place for the night was Mike Wyatt, at 3.25, then in Third Steve Sears at 4.08.

Place...Net Pts.. Skipper.......Avg. Finish

1.......25..... D. Steger...... 2.08

2.......39......M. Wyatt........3.25

3.......49......S. Sears........4.08

4.......46......B. Green........4.60

5.......58......B. Schuster.....4.83 Tie: most firsts

5.......58......J. Hogan........4.83

7.......76......T. Schreiber....6.33

8.......68......D. Jarold.......6.80

9.......82......L. Lamphier.....6.83

10......88......N. Lessick......8.80

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
