Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An excellent introduction to a fascinating small scale hobby and sport. This is proper sailing in miniature and it is rumored that many olympic skippers also enjoy r/c sailing. The sixteen chapters and 110 pages cover choosing a boat, sailing theory, construction methods (if you plan to build your own), materials, design, rigging, sails, radio equipment, going racing and more besides.
Well written, comprehensive and engaging.

Format: Paperback
All aspects of making models , either from wood or modern materials, sailmaking, tactics are extensively described which is particularly interesting for novices in the field .Honestly I had expected more attention to aspects of RC, like choice of rudder servos and sailwinches, batteries and wiring diagrams etc.

This book, starts with the basics, from what makes up an rc yacht, and its history, to the different classes available to sail.
It go on to offer instructions in manufacturing a One Meter class boat, as well as tuning it, and getting the most of your racing.
