Your Best Source about Model Yachts in Tucson, AZ
Is model yachting something you could get interested in? Or, have you already experienced model yachting and are looking for local interest? Well, you have found the right place to learn about model yachting in Tucson. Most people find that sailing with others offers much more enjoyment than sailing alone. Don’t do anything else until you contact us.
We are primarily a racing club. We have 30 members including an avid group of racers. Twelve to eighteen boats on the starting line is not unusual during the winter months. But, if you are not interested in racing, no problem. We have members who just enjoy the building model yachts and sailing.
The focus on most of the information here is on racing, but that is only because model yacht racing requires rules and regulations to ensure fair competition. Don’t let the needed learning turn you off. If you do not already know the rules they can be learned with a little dedication knowing that an understanding of the rules increases your chances of winning races. Whether you are the best skipper on the course or a newbie, participating in a race is fun and winning a race is exhilarating.
Contact us so we can talk about your interests and find out if the Pima Micro Yacht Club can fulfill a model yachting curiosity of yours.
