The rules Gregg gave you are standard the world over for R/C boats. Of course a club can set their own rules as they see fit. Don't know why you would want to use the Match Racing Appendix.

In my club we sail strictly by the IOM International rules and the ISAF rules. IOM's must be measured to be scored.

No, the rules are set by ISAF, the current one's are 2009-2012. There is an Appendix for R/C sailing, it is Appendix E.

These are the rules that are used by all sailing all over the world (except for exemptions in Sailing Instructions). This makes it easy to sail anywhere and know what the rules are, very nice for classes such as International One Meter (IOM). Again, if your club wishes to make changes that is fine, as long as everyone knows the changes.

There is an appendix for models as Ted referred to.

Thanks Greg!
Thats what I thought. But it comes up from time to time about model boat rules. So I just want to clear things up as far as what established fleets do. I acually have a rule book in my hand but is 2001-2004.

I see that your quite the airplane enthusiest. I had a trainer plane and I built a Sig Riser too which took hours.

I had been crewing on big boats since I was 14. Got away from it during college. Got into racing Marbleheads in the late 80's and early 90's but fell out of that. Started flying in about 2005. My brother and I just bought a J105 to race last spring and my interest in sailing reignited in a big way. Not flying much anymore. I am building a Soling 1M, the only model class that races locally. I am also putting together an IOM, but I am taking my time on that since I have no one to race with. I am waiting on a trio of Blackstar SSs to do some racing off the stern of the big boat. And I still have my Marblehead.

I should finish my IOM and come race with you guys!

For information - We identify boats by their sail numbers not by the colour of their hulls.

Great videos. Keep them coming. We can't sail here in Michigan yet, so watching your races is the best possible replacement.
May I make a few suggestions. If you have a mono pod, or tri-pod, it would help a little to remove the video jitter. Also, if you can find a piece of open cell foam to tape over the mic, your voice will be heard better.
Your color commentary is fun. Keep up the good work.
Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for your suggestions. Yea the wind had me whipped. I am learning various technics as I go. I am a sailor though so most times I just grab the camera and shoot when I have a dull moment. Its a regular camera not a camcorder so I cant zoom in and out. I apprieciate you saying to show more because I feel like I am taking over the thread with my many comments and I dont want to seem like our new club has it all together. We are very hyped and sail anytime we can. We are trying to learn. And Being on an island we look forwrd to comments from anyone good or bad. Thanks again for the encouragement..It means alot!!
