Sail boat News
6/1/2022: RC sailboats learning event is this Sunday, June 5th, from noon to 3:00 pm on the south pond (Centennial Lakes shopping center). Already have a sailboat and need some help with basic set up or just learning more about sailing, or maybe you would just like to try out sailing? You do not need to be a club member to stop by and check out the event and learn a bit more about sailing and/or give sailing a try. There will be people there to help you out individually in a relaxed environment. We will have buoys set out just to help you learn about sailing with the wind coming from different directions. This is a non-racing event, learning and pleasure sailing only. Bring any sailboat that you want! This event is for everyone and all sailboats.
To park at the south pond turn east onto Minnesota Drive off of France Avenue, right opposite the new Lobster Shack restaurant, then the first left – north – into the parking lot. You will see the archway entrance into the park right off of the parking lot. If you get to Tavern 23 you have gone too far. Through the archway and you will be right there!
Refer to the Questions and Answers, Location,pages, the AMYA ODOM site or Facebook group 'Edina Model Yacht Club' for current happenings. Attend the monthly Membership Meetings to connect directly with sailing experts.
The national organization American Model Yachting Association, of which EMYC is a member, sanctions our racing events.
'Dragon Flite 95' sail boats are gaining popularity. Visit the national organization DF95 Class Owners Association.
We share tips and project progress at monthly Membership Meetings (third Tuesday). If the pond in Edina Minnesota USA is frozen solid, we take this time to build new and improved boats. Otherwise we might be at the pond!
