Mount Hope Bay Model yacht club

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.

In 2019 we added a second class of boat: the DragonFlite 95.

Over the years, interest in Soling racing has declined and DF95s have gained in popularity.  DF95s race on Thursdays with the following Tuesday as a weather day.  They race on the tidal, salt water cove at the end of Schooner Drive in Tiverton. Racing starts promptly at 11.00.

Solings are not forgotten and race in three regattas per season at dates which will be announced on our website

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.

We are registered with the American Model Yachting Association, number 257.
