Radio Control Sailboats at DCYC!

DCYC is hosting a demonstration of R/C sailing and racing. We've invited our friends at Trinity River Model Yacht Club to show off their R/C sailboats and introduce (or re-introduce) full-size sailors to the wonders of miniature racing.

R/C offers all the excitement of sail racing at a fraction of the cost of full-size boats. Our guests are bringing some one-design boats and some that showcase design diversity. Technology and manufacturing have come a long way since most of us have seen a model boat, and the hobby is more affordable and exciting than ever. For a lot of us, it is yet another way to spend the weekend MAB (messing around [on, with, or in] boats)!

We're sandwiching this event between the morning's Youth Sailing program and the evening's pursuit race so that both groups can enjoy the demonstration. Some of our guests are offering our members hands-on experience driving their boats. Accordingly, we are inviting our guests to join our pursuit race. Please let Heather Fahle know if you'd like to host a guest crew member!
