  • How and where can I buy or sell a boat?

    If your a newcomer you will want to start sailing as soon as possible. Decide which class you are interested in. If it’s one of the DF Classes you can probably purchase a new boat from stock.

    Buying a new boat for all the other classes will take some time to deliver. In some cases 6 months to a year. In this case it would be best to buy a used boat to get you sailing.

    If you have already joined a club its likely there are one or two boats for sale by club members. We do have a classifieds section in our forum where you will find used boats. Do ensure that you follow the guidelines for purchasing which are available in the forum.

    If you want a new boat then we recommend using one of our Suppliers who can found Here

    MYA members can sell their unwanted boats in our classifieds section of the forums. Make sure you have a forum account as the forum is not directly linked to the members area.

  • How do I learn the radio racing rules?

    On the water experience at club and open event is the best place to learn together with reading the expert rule books. Bryan Willis’ ‘The racing rules in practice’ is very good as it shows typical racing situations and outlines the rights and obligations of the boats.

    We have some excellent videos that will help understand the basics in our knowledgebase here

    We have a beginners guide to the Racing Rules for Radio Control Yachts here

    Or if you have specific question why not ask it in our Racing Rules forum? here


  • What does MYA Insurance cover?

    The Association arranges on behalf of the individual Members, a Public & Products Liability Insurance policy that provides an indemnity limit of £5,000,000 per claim.

    In order to ensure that it provides cover for the said individual Members, the policy is arranged in the name of ‘The Committee and members FTTB (for the time being) of The Model Yachting Association jointly and severally for their respective rights and interests’.

    The basis of the policy is to provide indemnity where the Member is legally liable for injury to a Third Party or causes Third Party property damage or loss. The policy does not however cover damage to property in the care, custody or control of the said member. In the event of a Third Party Property damage claim the policy subject is subject to a £500 excess.

    The policy provides indemnity for Members based in Great Britain Northern Ireland the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands and also extends to include occasional International Model Yachting events but excluding North America, Canada and territories where the UK Foreign Office recommends avoiding travel.

    So now you know! Please note that over the years some misconceptions about what is and is not covered may have arisen (eg: Clubs are NOT covered), so please read the above as it is quite short and then, if you have any further questions, please notify either your District Councillor or the MYA Treasurer.
