Fancy a go at model yachting?

The Model Yachting Association is growing and has attracted several new clubs and many new members from the dinghy and yachting circuit already this year.

The association has several large events planned this season including the One Metre European championship at Fleetwood SC from 1-7 June. Over 80 entries are expected to take part from all corners of the globe including a large contingent from Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa and the USA. Martin Roberts, the current World, European and UK One Metre Champion, will also be on the the start line to defend his title.

To find out more about model yachting, why not pop along to the championship for a day to see the boats in action or attend the MYA National Open Day on 15 September. This event is being hosted by all the MYA clubs in the UK to give potential members a chance to ‘have a go’.
