Event/Video: Lake Balboa Model Yacht Club

We took a few minutes out of exceedingly busy weekend to visit Lake Balboa and check out the monthly meeting of the Lake Balboa Model Yacht Club.

I have always been interested in models and remote controlled devices including airplanes, so I was intrigued to see what the Yacht Club members used and how it operated.

I also took the opportunity to shoot some video and put together this short piece to give you a feel for the day.

Watch the Video

You can find more information about the Lake Balboa Model Yacht
From their web site...

Lake Balboa Model Yacht Club sails just north of Los Angeles, California 12 months a year. We are affiliated with the American Model Yachting Association (AMYA.org) and welcome other sailors and interested people. Our members build and race radio-controlled model sailboats in specific classes (types of sailboats); most being one meter long. Radio controlled Model Yacht Racing follows the racing rules of sailing and is remarkably similar to full size boat racing. If you want all the excitement, fun and commeraderie of sailboat racing, without seasickness and extraordinary expense, this is the hobby/sport for you.
