Soling 1 Meter Model Yacht Workshop

The Back Bay Skippers were established in 2008, with the assistance of the New Hampshire Boat Museum (NHBM) and the Laconia Model Yacht Club, to promote radio controlled sailing in the Wolfeboro area. Their mission was to build and sail a fleet of sailboats, while providing participants and spectators an avenue to enjoy this hobby.

Build a boat of your own. Starting in January, we will hold a model-yacht-building school. It will last six to seven weeks with one work session per week. Dates are determined by the group after all applications are received.  Everything you need, except paint, will be supplied, and our model-building experts will guide you every step of the way. They know all the tricks to help you build a yacht you can be proud of.

Cost: $200 for 1M Soling Hull Kit

Radio kit sold separately for an additional $165

We receive a discount for purchasing more than 6 kits.  If we have more than 6 people participating, the price for boat kits will be $200.00  We will certainly keep you informed of the order status.
