Our 2020 Sailing Season

The Covid- 19 pandemic has made it necessary to cancel the early part of our racing season. Scored racing will begin on July 14th. See the new schedule in Racing Details. Please check this website’s NEWS section often for any further developments.

About Us

Welcome to the Mount Hope Bay Model Yacht Club.  We are registered with the American Model Yacht Association as AMYA Club #257.

The club was started by a small group of residents of the Village at Mount Hope Bay in 2007 to build and sail Soling 1 meter radio controlled model sail boats.  The mission was, and still is, to have some fun through friendly competition.

The club has grown and now half the membership comes from outside the Village and in 2019 we added a second class of boat: the DragonFlite 95.

Both classes of boat race on Tuesdays at 11.00 on the tidal salt water cove at the end of Schooner Drive in Tiverton, RI.  Thursdays at 11.00 are our “weather days”.

Please come and join us on the shore, try your hand and you may find that you’d like to know more.  What you will find is a fun loving group that is friendly, helpful and of all levels of skills.

If you’d like to enquire about membership or have any other questions, please contact me at mhbmyccommodore@gmail.com.
