Yet Another New Sailor from Connecticut

Hello All

I am relatively new to rc sailing, but having done some rc gliders, cars and powerboats as well as having “big boat” sailing experience, this seems like a natural step. I am building a footy “Presto” having been drawn to its traditional appearance and apparent good sailing qualities. It’s getting close to done, but family and work occasionally slow progress. It’s been a lot of fun watching it take shape!

I am in West Hartford, and hope to make it out to some of the local spots to meet some of you in the future. I hope to also solicit a few bits of advise in the Footy forum on my build as I wrap up my own boat.


Hi Denman, welcome to RC sailing! The nearest active club in your area is the Housatonic MYC who sail in Middlebury, CT. They will be hosting the SeaWind Class Nationals September 27/28th at Hop Brook Lake and I will be there. Come on over and meet some folk. Contact Ken Bauser for more information on the club and RC sailing in general.
