Radio control sailors and scalers in the Phoenix metropolitan area are only separated by geography: sailing boats in different, often distant parts of the region and coming together for regattas or scale events. This WVRCM SailRC.club and ScaleRC.club site tries to keep us all connected by acting as a central bulletin board and membership meeting spot.
WVRCM has fun sailing for a couple hours each week on Thursdays, at Estrella North Lake. DF95s and SeaWinds are the most common boats. We're now on winter hours of noon to about 2pm. Members get weekly updates.
In addition, WVRCM holds a monthly membership meeting on the first Saturday of the month, starting at 10am at Tierra Verde Lake in Litchfield Park.
Other RC sailing in the Phoenix area happens at these spots:
Gilbert Model Yacht Club: Starting at 9am, Tuesday-DF95; Wednesday-Victoria; Thursday-SeaWind; Saturday, DF95.
Leisure World Tillerman Sailing Club: Focusing on Marbleheads and 36s and racing on Sundays. Contact Phil Meyrick, 503.806.1730.

WVRCM is home for scale boats, the models of full-size military and civilian boats and ships, often created with amazing attention to detail. Learn more about scale boats here.
