Powered by the wind, with sails trimmed and rudders set by remote control, yachts of various classes race an Olympic course with all the excitement of a full-size race boat.
Whether you are a racing rock star or someone who enjoys just cruising to air out your beautiful boat in the wind, this is for you.
We are enthused, committed radio-controlled model yacht sailors who meet regularly at the Humber Bay Park East in Toronto and at Douglas Kennedy Park on Lakefront Promenade in Mississauga. For more information please download our flyer.
Radio Control Sailing has many classes of boats. In our club members have a variety of craft that can be seen on Saturday and Sunday mornings, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings at one of our two sailing locations. We invite you to come out to visit us on the water and try sailing a boat. Contact our Sail Division Captain at SailCaptain@metromarine.org for more information and to find out which pond is currently being used.
We also have enthusiasts who build scale models of famous sailing ships that are equipped with radio controls for sailing at the pond. Here is a copy of our Sailing Schedule: MMM Sail Group schedule 2019 DRAFT 2019 03 03
