Canadian Radio Yachting Association, RC Sailing

Other Classes

This page is under development and we welcome information and photographs on specific classes and designs from members.

There are many boats other than the international and recognised classes sailing in Canada.  These fall into three basic categories with considerable overlaps.

  1. Emerging one design classes often of local origin designed to meet the local sailing conditions.
  2. Established classes such as the RC Laser which has an established class association and is sailed in both local fleets and by independent sailors.  Other boats usually sold as kits at local hobby stores.
  3. Boats, usually scratch built scale replicas of full size vessels.  Many are built more for the joy of building than sailing.
