Check the MYA website. :-))

If this is the AMYA they have a lot on the website, and a lot of information about making your boat go better as well. 8)

Hi gyronuts,
I got all excited when I first read your topic heading.
I thought at last a modeler shorter than me!
Good luck with your one meter yachting. The rules are the same as full size yachting, the only problem is you're a lot further away and this DOES lead to disputes.
If you visit the 'Bridlington Model Boat Society' web site, then click on yachting there is quite a lot of info on Meter boats and rules.

Hi Gyronuts,

If you Google " The Rules in Practice - 2009-2012" by Bryan Willis, then you should be able to get a copy from 'Amazon' at about £14.50.
Very good book with pictorials showing progressive scenarios and talking through the rules as the situations develop.

Regards

Ralph

Can't beat a copy of the rule book but try this site for game and scenarios to assist learning -  http://game.finckh.net/indexe.htm
