Latest: 06/28/16 -Tuesday June 28- go to "Calendar"- a website anomaly- repaired soon!!

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.

June 18 Open House at Rec Park

Oh what a day! The day was one of those nice summer days we all hope for: temperature upper 70's, breeze around 4, clear skies with an occasional high cloud.

We arrived to find the pond banks dotted with people and fishing poles. The local YMCA was sponsoring a fishing tournament. Permission was granted for us to launch and sail in a non- intrusive manner, so we did. People are always surprised and intrigued by RC sailing. Most do not know such a thing is possible. This generated some questions from by-standers which were gladly answered-the most common question: "Do they have motors?" A few adults, one grandson, and even some 10-ish boys sailed and seemed to enjoy their first RC sailing experience.

On the water were:

-2 Soling 50s

-2 Soling 1 Meters

-1 Micro Magic

-1 Marblehead and a Laser.

We had (early) a Victoria and even a tugboat- but they (for some reason) left before the sailing began. Too bad. Most of us have never seen a Victoria (one of the more popular Classes in the AMYA) sail. AND... we could have used a rescue at least once!!

All who sailed enjoyed the laid back atmosphere of the open sailing event. Some impromptu races were called between those interested, with courses named at times on the fly using existing marks or pond features (a bubbler).

Our next open sailing event is planned for July 16. Stay tuned for the posting of which sailing location it will be held at. If you are in the area, take an hour out of your Saturday and come check it out. You just may find it more interesting than you think.


Tuesday June 14 Report- beautiful night- cool 70 degrees, and clear. Winds NE, clocking to E at about 5 MPH. In the first few races, courses were S/F then East to Mark 6 to starboard, a reach around Mark 5, to "X/2" and Finish. As the wind clocked right, we began to build Mark 1 into the courses, and for the last several races we sailed S/F, round Mark 3 to starboard, Mark 1 to port, "X/2" to port, then finish. In Races 11 and 12 we even added a second sausage ("X/2" to 3 to "X/2" and Finish).

Configuration of Marks as changed June 15. "1" moved out, and "6" moved closer to dock for less weeds and more visibility.

Dave Steger won the evening, with 38 racing points to Mike Wyatt's 41, and average scores of 3.17 and 3.42 respectively. In third was Steve Sears at 4.25 average points per race.

-No Events Planned-

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
