Founded in 1999, the Halifax Area Model Yacht Club has grown into one of Canada’s most decorated and successful racing clubs.
The club primarily sails the Soling One Meter class RC sailboat. Designed for any wind and sea condition, the Soling One Meter is forgiving in the hands of a new skipper (making it suitable for introducing newcomers to the hobby) while offering the balanced control, sensitivity to tuning, precise handling and spirited performance that keeps veteran skippers involved in the class for years.
The Soling One Meter was introduced to the American Model Yachting Association (AMYA) in 1993. Since that time, it has grown to become the largest class of model boats in the US registered with the American Model Yachting Association (AMYA). In Canada we have Soling 1M boats racing across the country but centred from Ontario to the East Coast.
We also have a small fleet of EC-12 sailboats that sees members travelling in New England to take on some of the US’s finest sailors.
HAMYC is all about having fun and we include some strong social events along with some competitive racing.
