as you have had a yacht before, a micro magic would be the better of the 2........unless you want to upgrade the Victoria to carbon fibre masts etc!!

before you sail a micro magic upgrade the rudder linkage to a solid rod type linkage , ive seen a couple of them in the middle of our local lake with no steering due to the kit supplied cord breaking !

Hd, Talk to Mike Weston he knows just about everything there is to know about the Micro Magic  http://www.rcyachts.org.uk/epages/Store3_Shop2540.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/Store3.Shop2540/Categories

I bought mine from him. I'm more happy with the service and advice he gave me

I have a Vic and love it.

However, the Micro Magic has a bigger following in Europe, and even though you may not consider racing now, the option is open in the future. I think (but stand to be corrected) that there is more Micro Magic racing in UK.

Probably not much in it.

I have sailed my Vic in a gale. Great fun, even if she does broach a lot and porpoise when running  :D :D
