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, Two Classes of 50/800-- 50 inch boats, having 800 sq. in. of sail area. These can be any design fitting the AMYA Soling 50 One-Design Class, or the "Vintage Marblehead" Class.

Soling 1 Meter (L), 50/800 Class yachts: Vintage Marblehead (C), Soling 50 (R)


WRMYC $ 350 Used Boat Program
WRMYC has a program for selling refurbished Soling 1 Meters for just $350- refurbished for functionality by WRMYC racers.

There is also a 12-month BuyBack program: Try racing with us with little or no risk!!

The boats available have a decent rig and sails, a stand, a Spektrum receiver, and a basic battery charger (wall charger). All you need is a simple Spektrum transmitter and a 6V battery pack. We can even fix you up with these, pre-owned but fully functional!!
