If you would like to become involved in a hobby/sport that is relaxing, competitive, lots of fun and a means to make lots of very social like-minded friends, then welcome to our website and read on.

But, a warning. building and racing radio controlled yachts can be very addictive, with no known cure.

   Club Sailing Days are the 2nd & 4th Saturdays of the month at Nicholson River car park at 11am

and on the Second Wednesday of the month For the NMSC / NAGS Wednesday

"Just Playing Boats Group" & BBQ

Meet at the boat ramp park, Dawsons Cove Newlands Arm at 11am

NMSC / NAGS Wednesday Sailing has its own Website  (Click Here)

The NMSC is a club of very active members whose aims are to promote the hobby of constructing and the sport of racing radio controlled yachts. We sail in the Nicholson River  at NICHOLSON in (East Gippsland) Victoria. AUSTRALIA (at the car park) on the 2nd and the 4th Saturdays of the month starting at 11:30 am (Check Calendar ).

New members will be made most welcome and any member of the public who would like to try this great sport can come and have a sail with us at any time

All classes of yachts are most welcome to race with our Club. The most popular class yacht sailed at the NMSC is the International One Metre (I.O.M) which is the most popular class in Australia and the World. The International.One.Metre (IOM) is the fostered class of the Nicholson Model Sailing Club

. Members also sail two locally designed yachts the  "One Point Five" class and a smaller yacht called the" Budgie" which uses IOM sails and can compete quite well against most IOM`s

About half of our Racing is Handicap Racing using the RYG 10 rule system in 2 divisions which works very well and our other racing is usually Pennant racing in 2 Divisions

"A" Division includes IOM`s and "Budgies"

"B" Division includes all other Classes

We also encourage Members to construct other types of Radio Controlled Sailing Craft with many fine examples of Steam Boats Paddle Steamers Schooners, Ketches etc
