Racing radio control sailboats is very exciting and lots of fun. All of the tactics are the same as for sailing full size boats, but with model boats everything happens much more quickly. There are lots of starts and lots of buoy roundings. Skippers are often of very competitive big boat skippers. When you get it right, it is fairly simple.
