HI . Glad you found RCGroups forum - great place to get info and I hope that
some people post up on your class boat .
Are you aware that on the AMYA website ( www.modelyacht.org
) they now
have a chat forum ? there is a tab on the menu bar - you can register as you
do in any of these sites... anyway within the forum there is a heading that
includes individual AMYA class boats , and yes there is one for Newport 12s .
Nothing has been posted yet , but that forum is very new still .
You could also drop in at Windpower ( www.rcsailtalk.com
) and see if anyone
wants to discuss N12s .
In Yahoo there is a group called "Newport12Meter" but I don't think it is
very active,but the archive is open so you can go and read the posts there.
