Benefits of joining MMMontreal
The club is dedicated to all aspects of RC boating (except high speed powered race boats) and has the will, skills and organization to help people of all ages to easily get into this rewarding hobby. Sailing at Baie D’Urfé (open lake) includes a rescue boat that members can use if needed. The club also organizes races between boats which use the Racing Rules of Sailing with some simplifications to suit these smaller boats.
Racing your RC sailboat
A course is set up, 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.
Marine Modellers Montreal club members get together on a regular basis in order to test their boats and sailing skills.
Marine Modellers Montreal club meets monthly to discuss general running of the club, to share ideas and to socialize.
