About the Green Valley Model Yacht Club
The Green Valley Model Yacht Club (GVMYC) was recently chartered by the American Model Yacht Association as Club #333. Started in June 2014 by the club's first Commodore, Harvey Mickelsen. The first formal meeting of the club was held on June 29nd, 2014.
The purpose of the GVMYC is to:
- Promote remote controlled (R/C) model yacht sailing
- Teach about R/C sailing and sailboat racing
- and most importantly, TO HAVE FUN!
The club meets and races on the 1st & 3rd Sunday of each month. During the summer we start at 10:00 a.m. and in the winter at 1:00 p.m. at Sahuarita Lake located in the town of Sahuarita, Arizona. Please check the Events NEWS TICKER for the exact location and time. Sometimes we have make up sails on other than the 1st & 3rd Sunday.
We welcome all skill and experience levels of model yacht sailors and their boats from any class although our primary class of R/C sailboat is the Victoria, a kit made by Thunder Tiger.
We invite you to join us to learn more about the exciting sport of model yacht sailing and racing. Please bring a chair and your sense of fun and adventure! We look forward to seeing you soon!
