* Wednesday Series- 5:00 PM every Wednesday at at BSA Camp Stigwandish, Madison OH

50/800's (Soling 50's/ Soling M and Vintage Marbleheads) are raced "for fun" (approx. 2:00 PM) on Saturdays following the S1M racing program,

Fun Sails are scheduled in-between, several times a year. Members bring "whatever boat you float"- sailboats only- on those days.

Social events are generally two per year- a mid-season picnic, and an Awards Dinner around Thanksgiving.

Saturday, October 31 Story: Our racing season concludes.

When the racing had concluded, the course marks were pulled and the gate to the parking area shut and locked until next year.

What now?? Some will do minor maintenance and put their boats away. Some will simply put the boat in the basement, then blow off the dust next spring- and hope. (But boats do NOT "heal!!!!" - What's broke now will be broke next April.)

Many will pick-up where they left off starting next spring, and still others anticipate beginning anew. For those, a new season has begun- "The winter building season". And for them, the ability to enjoy this hobby all year- sailing or building- is the best part of the whole thing.

Regardless, we all are looking forward to starting again next season. It will "only" be 5 months until the spring winds of April blow warm weather again!!


The Final 2015 Season results and standings will be announced at the Awards Dinner, December 5.

Racing season begins!!


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 FIRST Awards Dinner, 2008

L to R: Al Daviso, Frank Novak Jr., First Season Champion Frankie Novak, Mike Wyatt, Dave Querin.

It's a much bigger group, now!!
