Park City Sailing now has remote control R/C sailboat racing as a spring and fall activity. The club is racing the popular CR 914 class on either the Gorgoza Park pond adjacent to the snow tubing area or on the pond at the Jordanelle State Park. The 2016 schedule will be posted shortly. Remote control R/C sailboat racing is new to our club and new to Utah. Our goal is to have informal sailing and racing to grow the fleet and to establish a regular schedule.
If remote control R/C sailboat racing grows as quickly as the overall Park City Sailing program, there will be a very active program in no time at all. Currently we have 8 CR 914’s racing in the club and there is a readily available supply of second hand boats. Some are priced as low as $350 with the remote transmitter. The boat owners are also very willing to let visitors take a turn at the controls to see if they like the sport.
Our fleet is now a member of the AMYA American Model Yachting Association #349. There is an abundance of information available on both the CR 914 link and the AMYA link. Please contact our Fleet Captain Barry Donaher at (435) 575-0600 for more information.
