U.S. Vintage Model Yacht Group
Hello all. As a result of my 2014 and 2016 sailing with the USMYG, I decided to join to help promote the hobby. Here is a quick description of who they are.
The U.S. Vintage Model Yacht Group is a Special Interest Group of the American Model Yachting Association. Our organizational goals are the preservation, building, and sailing of older model yacht designs, and the study of the history of the sport of model yachting. ``Vintage'' primarily means any older model sailboats no longer sailed (or never raced) in serious competition. These encompass free-sailing model yachts, older designs converted to R/C and pre-1970s R/C sailing models. This includes class racing yachts, non-class sailing models and commercially-built toys of the past. There are also replica models built to the older designs and new designs recreating older sailboat styles.
We also support those who sail traditional sailing craft models, such as schooners, skipjacks, and other scale models. The hulls are generally made of wood, with some fiberglass models, and range in length from one to six feet. The rigs are usually constructed from wood or aluminum, with cotton or dacron sails.
I think this organization can help bring us from the web to the water. Check out their website at http://pages.swcp.com/usvmyg/index.html
