Racing your RC sailboat

we set up a course, windward/leeward, with a start line in the center of the course, perpendicular to the wind. The races use a normal start with an upwind leg, a leeward leg and a second upwind final leg, or sometimes two times around. Boats are mostly DF65 and Weedless 1M classes. Learn about the Racing Rules of Sailing.

What members are saying
about Marine Modellers Montreal

Here’s a couple of testimonials from our members:

A few years ago my son had seen some RC sailboats racing in Kingston and expressed an interest in building one to sail in Montreal. When I started looking around, all I could find were expensive pre-assembled boats or kits. Then I came across the Marine Modelers of Montreal and contacted them.  With the guidance of the members we were able to build a Weedless S40 from scratch, which would have been very difficult to do without their expert help and knowledge.  We also  learned how to sail and race RC sailboats, which was the beginning of a great hobby.

As Covid descended, I had to put my primary hobby on pause.  I now needed something to do, something local.  R/C Sailing.. It’s become a fun way to spend a Sunday morning.  I also take my boat camping!
