October 28th: Halloween (5:30pm-7:30pm) Pineville Resident: $15.00/Non-resident $20.00 – For ages 12 & Older

Queen City Model Yacht Club

WHEN: We have sail days (practice races and tune-ups) 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 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.

If you are interested in having some fun and making new friends contact us via our website: or by email at: [email protected] or stop by!

The QCMYC will host the Region Regatta for the SeaWind Class.  Dates are Sat./Sun. November 6th & 7th   Races begin at 10:00 am each day. Saturday races will run until 4:00 pm and Sunday until 1:30 pm. The application form for race entry is on the club website as well as on the AMYA site along with the Notice of Race (NOR).  The entry fee is $35 and you must be an AMYA  member to participate.  You do not have to be a current QCMYC member to enter.  The fee will cover lunch on Saturday and a baseball cap for each skipper entered.  We are looking forward to a good participation from the QCMYC members as well as the surrounding clubs. Please sign up early.
