It was done for the previous owner by an artist down in PA I think. Yes, it is amazing in person. Here's the link to more pics and the listing.

Ahoy!!! Captains. . I just love this class. I had a Newport some years back. It had to be sold at the time. I miss it. However, I t has now inspired me to build something similar all home made. As Captain Hax knows. Just wanted to drop a friendly hello from Connecticut. Bill

I am in need of a set of B Rig EC12 Sails that are not already marked with sail numbers. Anyone out there with a nice set of sails, shoot me a note.

The differences in the different rigs are the size of the sails mainly. A rig is the fullest and tallest set up the rigs. best sails for light air conditions. B Right is a good sail for winds over 13 mph sustained. C is not used very often if at all down this way but I hear the New Zealand guys use them a lot. Over all the sails hold close to the same square inches in area. B and C may be a bit less than A but that gain more volume in the lower areas of the sail. Over all if you are not racing the different sets of sails may not make as much a difference to you, but when Racing it becomes a power vs control factor and the B right and C rig will give less power and more control in heavier winds than the A. for a look at the measurements of the rigs you can see the sail dimensions in the rules for the class at https://www.theamya.org/boats/ec12/

Scott, most are marked with a sharpie which can be removed with denatured alcohol. New are around $150. You are looking for an old, unmarked set? Not sure there are many laying around.

For years there were a few EC12's in the South East corner of Michigan but no racing. Now with the new Kensington RC Model Yacht Club being formed and interest growing like crazy there are about a dozen EC12's in the area and a full schedule of racing for this season kicking off with a one day event this Saturday to celebrate the delivery of these three new boats from Chesapeake Performance Models (Dave Ramos).

See post #5 for club details.

Aren't they beautiful!

Hi Ted -

I didn't see if the Park requires entry fees or permits ? I am in the area (north) in Saginaw this weekend, and if time and family connections make it possible, I might try to escape and drive down to watch. Please let me know about park fees, if you would.

Thanks, Dick L.
