Final Saturday Race Date of 2016!!

Nine Gold Fleet racers, and one Silver Fleeter showed up on a cold (48 degree) blustery day with shifting, puffy wind. The gloves, not seen since May, were back, and we had intermittent rain through the morning and into early afternoon. Dave Steger and "ROBO-MARK" were back, and the line was set square to the wind. Courses were generally S- 1- 5 (or sometimes 6) and F. Toward the end we added a second lap as we got in more races toward our planned 12 Heats.

Bob Schuster found the wind and courses to his liking, taking five firsts, backed up with a second and two thirds for a total of 23 points after discards, and first-place honors. In second place for the day was Steve Sears at 26, then Dave Karpuzska at 35.

ONE day in the WRMYC season left- Tuesday, Oct 25, 5 PM.

Tuesday, Oct. 18 Results:

A great night of sailing, again. When we arrived at about 3:30, the wind was blowing about 12 MPH from the SSW. But (you've heard this before!) by race time at 5:00 PM- it was still nice air, but only about 8 MPH, still SSW. As the evening went on, the winds became lighter, but never really fell below about 4 all evening- so nice air.

Courses were (every race) S/F- 4- 6- F, triangles. The S/F to 4 was a beat requiring 3 or 4 tacks, with shifts that gave lifts and headers, making for good racing. Then, a long run to Mark 6, followed by a close reach (with occasional tacks) back to the S/F completed the race.

The winner was Dave Steger with 5 bullets and an average finish of just 1.83. This was the lowest average score of the year!! In second was Mike Wyatt at 3.25, then Tom Schreiber and Steve Sears tied at 3.92, with Tom getting the place on the tiebreaker.

ONE Tuesday night remains!!

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. 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.
