Do you want to build your own model yacht and race them with Back Bay Skippers? If so, each winter the Back Bay Skippers run a six-week model yacht building workshop. The workshop begins in January and runs for six or seven weeks. The Back Bay Skippers determine the start date after they receive the applications. The applicants’ interests determine which of two model yachts you’ll build built in the workshop.

If you’ve never worked with woodworking tools or built a model sailboat before, don’t worry. The Back Bay Skippers provide a friendly, stress-free environment. They also are expert boat builders and will guide you each step of the way in making your own model sailboat. You will buy the hull and the Back Bay Skippers will supply all the parts you need, including the sails. You will have to supply the paint, though, because color is an individual choice. At the end of the workshop, you’ll have a radio-controlled boat you will be proud to sail. To race your boat, you also will have to buy a radio kit, which includes the radio, servos, wiring, and a switch.

You can choose between one of two model yachts:
