11/14/2014: 2015 Pairs Series announced

For 2015, the Board has decided to add a Pairs Series, concurrent with the Saturday Series. This means: sailors will be paired up

- usually (but not always) a Gold Fleet sailor with a member of the Silver Fleet.

- Scores for racing on Saturday Race Days will be added for the two in a Pair;

- Pair totals will be kept for probably the best 5/lowest points days where BOTH members of a Pair were present, and in the Spring and Fall Series' (all year).

The Pairs scores will count toward a year-long Series, with separate trophies.

The objective is to put sailors together, and provide "two heads are better than one" situations, improving skills.

This is not another series of races, it is just using regular Saturday scores to form an additional Series.

11/9/2014: 2015 Building Clinics Announced

FREE!!! WRMYC Offers it's annual Building Clinics again in 2015. These clinics offer the new (or experienced) builder an opportunity to get coached as he or she builds their Soling 1 Meter model yacht!! All the "tricky" parts- centerlines, keel and rudder alignment, electronics mounting and tuning, etc. are done in a group setting, with the help of experts. The result will be a strong Soling, and a lot of fun while you build it. This even makes the long Northern Ohio winter seem to go faster!!

To see what you need to get started- download "WRMYC New Boat Recommendations", in the "Downloads" section to left, under the Soling drawing.

WRMYC recommends that you buy the Kit, and needed parts and equipment in three stages, to spread the cost out over the whole project. These are indicated in the downloaded document.

Section Three- Time to Plan for 2015!!
NOW is the time to think about what you will sail next season.

WRMYC is open to new Members, and the club can assist you in building a NEW Soling 1 Meter, or in finding a suitable used Soling.

A new one will cost around $ 550- $600. But for new Members, who might not not want to build, or who are not all that sure about investing in a new boat- WRMYC has refurbished USED Solings for just $ 350. and... with a 12-month buyback. Yes, we'll buy the Soling back and you can move to a new one, or simply recover your investment.

Sorry this is a program to build OUR Membership and participation- and so is only available to local sailors.

Download the information sheet: click "Downloads" to left, and "WRMYC New Member Program".

 Solings for Sale!!!
For reference, building a basic, kit-built new boat from a Kit costs about $ 550 - 600.

For further information on NEW and USED/ Refurbished Solings, Contact:
