New to RC Sailing

Hello, I live in Birmingham, AL and was recently introduced to rc sailing while on a trip to NYC. I am very interested in getting started but have no idea how to proceed. I have seen much on line about the Santa Barbara O D. Any thoughts?

I found this club near B’Ham,

I know there is a sailing group in Huntsville also. They mostly sail Victorias, but there are a few boats too. I would suggest you find a local group, and see what they sail (I don’t think there are any Santa Barbara OD’s anywhere near you).
