We are a group dedicated to sailing and racing Radio Controlled Sailboats on the West Coast of Canada and the Pacific Northwest region of the USA.

Our group sail boats that are recognized by and registered with the Canadian Radio Yachting Association (CRYA). This means all of our members are also members of CRYA. The classes commonly sailed in this area are the International One Metre (IOM), RC Laser, and the One Design One Metre (ODOM). All boats display their registered sail numbers.

We are also affiliated with the American Model Yachting Association as AMYA Club #260. Geographically we are located in AMYA Region 6.

Racing is conducted under the ISAF Racing Rules of Sailing. We sail by the rules but we don't use the rules to catch people out. If you race with us we expect to emphasize the "gentlemanly and sportsmanlike" definitions of Corinthian Rules.
