Queen City Model Yacht Club

A little bit about us: We love sailing and racing radio-controlled sailboats.   You are invited to come and watch or try your hand at sailing radio control model sailboats at Pineville Lake Park.  Please visit our website for more information.  Below are some of the particulars.

WHERE:  We sail at the Belle Johnston Community Center Pond:
1000 Johnston Dr. Pineville, NC 28134

WHEN: We race on most Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10:30AM to 12:30PM.    Occasionally we will host intra-club and/or regional Regattas at our site too.

WHAT:  We like to race Kyosho Seawind, Dragon Flite 95, and Soling’s. We open racing to more than one boat class due to lack of Seawind spare parts and new sailboats.

If you do not have a boat and would like to try your hand or see if this is something you would like to try, we have club boats available for you.

The Town of Pineville has been very helpful and gracious allowing our club to use Lake Park and even built a dock for us to launch the boats. It is a great place for these activities.

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!
