CR 914 kitAs some of you might know, Dave Ramos has purchased the molds and rights to the CR-914.  In doing so, he has now completed his first US production run and is shipping new boat kits.
 
Importantly, the new boats will be pretty sweet out of the box.  I was speaking with Dave last night as he drove to the Boston Boat Show.  He explained that you can almost take the hull out of the box and sail with it.  Remember how much filling and sanding was required with the hulls made in Japan?  Also, the hull scantlings are heavier so the boats won't be as prone to breaking.
 
Finally, the kits now come with the CT6 radio, a knock-off of the Spektrum 2.4 ghz radio systems that have worked so well for us.  These CT6s are programmable which the Spektrum 5s don't offer.  Dave preprograms them to give the trim servo a full range of swing and actually minimized the max throw of the steering servo (a good thing).
 
The kits will cost $495 plus shipping

SDYC 2012 NationalsThe CR 914 Class and the SDYC Model Yacht Fleet cordially invite you to attend the 2012 CR 914 National Championship Regatta, October 12-14, 2012 in San Diego.

Sailing will take place at the Mission Bay Model Yacht Pond, where the "Wind has never blown from there before". The pond is only 10 minutes away from the San Diego YC. All Social events will take place at SDYC.

There are many other things to do in this great City in addition to the 3rd National Championship held in San Diego and the 2nd time racing at the Model Yacht Pond. It's an outstanding event and a place to see your old friends from previous regattas around the Country and meet new friends, too. So, make your plans and bring your family for some great time and fun. Let's all meet in San Diego for a great time and fun racing.

GTMYC Sailing Dec 2011

The Fleet has been blessed with almost ideal racing conditions every Sunday!  A stark contrast to last winter when severe cold limited our sailing weekends. We have relocated to a pond at the Tulsa Community College campus at 81st and Hwy 169. The old pond was drained when a dead body was discovered in it. All of the fleet agrees that the new location is better than the old location so we will be there for the foreseeable future. 

Racing has been a lot of fun this year; we have consistently seen 8 to 10 boats participating every weekend and have had visitors using our loner boat on multiple occasions. The racing has been very competitive. Newcomer Roger Adams has advanced quickly from getting lapped to being in the heart of the fleet. Racing has become very competitive with multiple skippers bagging first place finished every weekend. 

Model boat sailing is a great way to advance your sailing skills. The tactics and strategy are identical to large boat racing, but piloting the boat from the shore adds a whole new perspective to your boat racing.

If you are interested in visiting the GTMYC, please visit our web site: http://www.gtmyc.org. We race every Sunday that is warmer than 40 and less windy than 20 at 2pm.
