You are invited to come and watch or try your hand at sailing radio control model sailboats at Pineville Lake Park.
WHERE: We sail at the Belle Johnston Community Center Pond:
1000 Johnston RoadPineville, NC 28134
Driving directions from Charlotte NC:
WHEN: We have sail days (practice races and tuneups) on most Wednesdays and Sundays from 10:30AM to 12:30PM. We have race days on most Saturdays from 10:30AM to 12:30PM. Occasionally we will host intra-club and/or regional Regattas at our site too.
WHAT: You can sail any boat with us during sail days (Wednesdays and Sundays) but we race the Kyosho Seawind on race days (Saturdays and Regattas). The SeaWind Readyset comes with pre-painted ABS hull in a blue-white color scheme and rigged ready to assemble with installed electronics and a 2.4 Ghz radio. The SeaWind Readyset can be purchased at discounted prices on Amazon.com and other online stores. The quality of design and fittings continue to make the SeaWind an excellent fleet boat with enough performance potential to satisfy even the most discriminating skipper. The SeaWind COA has demonstrated a strong organization with active fleets in all AMYA Regions and an active annual program of Regional and National Championship Regattas. The Class Rules tightly control the boat elements to ensure new skippers are not faced with a costly refit to be competitive while allowing minor modifications to rigging (materials and adjustment methods) to facilitate tuning and to the hatch cover to ensure watertight integrity.
Many of our members also have Dragon Force 95's and EC-12 Class boats so whatever you may have, come join us. If you do not have a boat and would like to try your hand or see if this is something you may like to try, we have club boats available for you to sail prior to making any investment.
