A free internet resource for the understanding, sharing and promotion
of  classic and vintage model yachting interests and activities.

We invite your comments and contributions, so we can better
serve the needs of the classic and vintage model yachting community.

(Please forgive the temporary unorganized aspect of some of these pages as I continue to adapt the site to Front Page 2003 and Windows Vista)
