Welcome to the World of Model Yachting

We are a 40 year old, not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting the designing, building, racing, and preservation of all model sailing yachts, and membership is open to all who are interested in these activities.

Our official classes of racing yachts cover the range from one foot to eight feet in length and from high tech developmental boats to affordable one designs. There really is something for every taste and skill level. The advantages of sailing a recognized class boat are the community of like-minded skippers and the depth of technical information and assistance they can provide.

If you are a beginning skipper, please click on the "Getting started" link to your left and also check out our magazine, the only publication in the country devoted 100% to model yachting.

If you are an experienced skipper, then this is your on-line resource for class rules, technical information, and help in organizing and running events.

Welcome aboard!
