R/C Sailboat magazine?


Is there a magazine that primarily covers R/C sailboats? Some
coverage of scale powered work and pleasure boats would be OK too.

"Radio Control Boat Modeler" seems to be dominated by power racing
boats. The last couple of issues each have a single review of a
sailboat kit, but that's it.

I know about the AMYA magazine.

Is there a R/C boat magazine that is as broad based as "Flying Models"
is with regard to flying model airplanes?

Well, if you don't mind reading in English - Marine Modelling
International has much better coverage of sail and other boats than
RCBM. (Old joke - BM is medicalese for "Bowel Movement" :-))

They are at http://www.traplet.com

Cheers,

Agreed. MMI also offers a 3-issue trial subscription, but I finished that
and will be subscribing. It's a VERY good magazine - even if it's from the
other side of the pond.



Seriously - the other magazines don't hold a candle to it.
