Model Yacht Regatta

November 14, 2011 by No Comments

Renewal of championship model racing will occur at the 2008 Model Yacht Regatta on Mystic Seaport’s waterfront August 21 – 24. It will feature radio-controlled (R/C) model classes as sanctioned by the American Model Yachting Association (AMYA) with the support of its US Vintage Model Yacht Group (VMYG). A total of 60 R/C models and skippers will compete on race courses with marker buoys using highly-honed racing tactics. These models are based on well-known classic designs, such as Star, 12-Meter and J boats. Mystic Seaport’s R/C Laser fleet will be available for visitors to experience hands-on model yachting. More information on this sport is on the AMYA web site: This video was produced in 2004 following the 5th Annual Model Yacht Regatta.
