Come Sail with Us - RC Sailboats on Pineville Lake

You are invited to come and sail a 1 meter Seawind or Dragonflite 95 radio controlled sailboat on Pineville Lake - Sundays, Wednesdays or Saturday mornings from 10 to noon. On Saturdays, we race Seawinds competitively from 10 to noon. We are now developing a Dragonflite 95 class as well. If you have a boat of any class, come by, have a little fun and meet some new friends. If you just want to see if you'll like the hobby, the Queen City Model Yacht Club has both boats and instructors available to introduce you to a relaxing and fun hobby. If you like it and want to buy a boat, we will be glad to give you the benefit of our experience along with tips on rigging and sailing. If you just want to sail and not compete, you can do that too.

The photos show two Dragonflite 95s, sail numbers 97 and 53. Also shown is a Seawind sail number 67. If you want to just stop by and talk it over, contact Brendan Sullivan (Sully) race director at 1-(914) 715- 4296.
