Remote Control Sailing: The Independence from Chesapeake Light Craft

Our friends Eric Schade and Dave Jackson developed this excellent 48-inch long sailing model, which they’ve named the “Independence.” Large fleets of Independence sailing models have been built from kits over the past few years, including at the WoodenBoat School and at the Pequot Yacht Club, where they are raced with competitive fervor. A powerful sailing model, the Independence is equipped with straightforward and inexpensive remote control technology. Kids will be thrilled with the model, but will have a VERY difficult time wresting the controls from their parents. Since the Independence is a “one design” class, you can build or join fleets of Independence models for racing. Fleets of early-model Independence sailboats are already up and running in New England. Now you can start your own, or just enjoy tacking and jibing in the nearest pond. Learn more about the Independence here:
