Why do you want to know?
And who realy cares?
And what's your point?
And how's the weather?
And is your sister single?

Ok I'll wait for an answer now.

Nirvanas , AMYA

Hi guys
I have to say I am slightly confused on this COA ( class owners
association ) deal . Now that I am a AMYA member ( honestly ? because
I bought a used Soling 1M , wanted the magazine and needed to get sail
numbers for the Soling ) I put the sail numbers on the Nirvana that Steve
Lang assigned to me ages ago , and sent him an Email with my AMYA
number and just kinda wanted to stand up and be counted. It seems I am
now grandfathered in with my Nirvana in the AMYA and the loophole seems to be I dont have to send them ( AMYA) $7.00 to register the boat or have
them assign me sail numbers.....
So I must be missing something here ( I usually am ) - a group sets
themselves up as an COA and controls its registration process , what
function does the AMYA have concerning these boats ?

I dunno , I always seem to be going upwind......

I've always wondered what the AMYA does for boaters?
I see boaters all the time out sailing. Do you have to be registered to even sail a boat? or can you start your own body of sailing?
I mean AMYA started somewhere, why not another racing body? one that doesn't cost to join.

Hey "Iron"
I'll try to answer some of your questions : A large part of what the AMYA
does envolves working as a clearing house for racing rules ( our "rules of the
road" as it were) and to organize/regulate regattas and as the web site
states to promote the design , building , racing and general enjoyment of
simply messing around with boats .
Do you have to join/register to sail ? sorta yes - depends what your doing and with whom , if you got 4 buds and just want to "play" at your local watering hole , well no . If you have a club with a couple dozen members ,
sail a weekly schedule , track wins/loses , chances are you will have "class"
boats , which means the are all the same , sail numbers help you see who is
who , and someday you could end up at a regional regatta . The AMYA
keeps all this under some kinda control .
As far as cost goes , with the exception of the AMYA membership
secretary I believe everyone is a volunteer - MOST of what you pay goes for a terrific 4 issue magazine ( as far as I know the only one just for RC sail )
and then clubs can get "pond insurance" because there are lawyers .
The world changes - used to be the only source of info was the old
MYQuarterly magazine for people scattered all over the U.S. , toiling away in their basements , waiting for a catalog to arrive from a company that had an ad in the 'zine . Dumas,Bluejacket,Dromedary,Vortex... sigh.
Teared up there -sorry. The AMYA web site is .modelyacht.org , go
poke around and see whats what , check out the kinds of sailboats that are
currently being raced , where and by who . later dude.
