Model Yacht Design: Pushing the Limits with Racing Sparrow

The world of model yacht design is one of innovation, precision, and creativity. It offers a canvas for experimentation, where hobbyists and professionals alike can reimagine what is possible within the confines of design and physics. The Racing Sparrow, a DIY RC yacht encourages builders to push their creativity to the limits. Check out the links throughout the article.

Canting keel part

This article aims to explore a few innovative ideas that you can incorporate into your Racing Sparrow build. With a length of 750mm and a monohull design, the Racing Sparrow is a great starting point for those looking to spice up their build. Below are some ideas to inspire your next project:

Twin Rudder

A twin rudder setup can greatly improve the yacht's agility and responsiveness, especially in windy conditions. By having two rudders, the yacht gets additional surface area for turning, allowing for sharper and more controlled manoeuvres . Read this cool build article for twin rudders.

Canting Keels

A game-changer in yacht design, canting keels offer a dynamic approach to stability and speed. By allowing the keel to pivot, you can counteract the forces of the wind, keeping the yacht upright with larger sails. This results in increased speed and enhanced performance in diverse sailing conditions. Take a look at this canting keel Racing Sparrow forum topic.

Winged Keel

A winged keel is a modern twist on the traditional keel design. By adding wings to the keel, the yacht can achieve greater lateral resistance, which can improve stability and speed.

Stayless Mast

By opting for a stayless mast, you're making a bold statement in design and functionality. A stayless mast can give your yacht a sleek, uncluttered appearance, while also reducing the weight and complexity of the rigging. Here is a cool article of a shroudless Racing Sparrow.  A stayless rig has a lot less drag also. A very fast option.

Fixed Wing Sails

Taking inspiration from the world of aviation, fixed wing sails can transform your yacht into a state-of-the-art racing machine. Unlike traditional sails, fixed wing sails act more like airplane wings, producing lift and allowing for impressive speeds.

Catamaran Hulls

Why stick to a monohull when you can double the fun? Catamaran hulls can give your Racing Sparrow added stability, speed, and a unique appearance. The skinny twin hulls produce less drag. If you can keep a catamaran from capsizing it will go very fast. There also is no lead bulb. The power to weight ratio is high. These things are rocketships!

Upscale to 2 Metres

For those who believe that bigger is better, consider upscaling your Racing Sparrow to a staggering 2 metres in length. This not only provides a grander appearance but also allows for more room to incorporate other design ideas.

The Racing Sparrow model yacht is more than just a hobby—it's an invitation to innovate. By experimenting with these design ideas, you can create a yacht that is not only visually captivating but also a marvel in performance. So, pick up your tools, let your creativity run wild, and sail towards uncharted waters!

Free model boat plans: the MiniX, an easy-to-build radio-controlled sailboat

model racing yacht plans

We set ourselves a challenge: to make a sailing model. In the end, after hours of reflection and work, we discovered that we took as much pleasure in designing and building as we did sailing our yachts. Here is the description of our project and the plans to download. Another article follows with the steps of the realization.

François-Xavier Ricardou

An easy-to-build, eye-catching, high-performance sailboat

Who hasn't dreamed of a little wooden sailboat with a beautiful canvas cover? The idea for this project is a child's dream.

model racing yacht plans

Sailing on a regular basis in "scale 1", we had the idea of having fun by sailing two boats to race in our "spare time". The boats had to meet the following specifications:

  • Easy to transport . Measuring just 50 cm, our MiniX doesn't take up much space in a trunk. However, the keel and mast can be dismantled. If need be, the MiniX can even be included in our vacation luggage.
  • Able to be thrown into the water "out the back of the car" without complicated implementation.
  • No investment that would jeopardize our homes. As this is not a one-off activity, we didn't want to invest in expensive radio controls (our boat's biggest expense). A basic radio control kit is powerful enough to handle "small" sail surfaces.
  • Resembling a sailboat at best, hence the presence of the deckhouse and cockpit. These two elements give a sense of scale without resorting to model-building. Above all, a sailboat must be beautiful. Don't we also sail for the pleasure of our eyes?

Modern construction

model racing yacht plans

To keep it light (ready to sail , the MiniX weighs just 800 g), the hull is an extruded polystyrene/epoxy resin sandwich (laminated Depron). While this process is not impact-resistant (though...), the structure and sandwich make it very rigid. Together with the deck, the whole thing forms a kind of egg whose strength is astonishing. It's impossible to apply the slightest twist to the hull, despite its lightness (the bare hull weighs just 260 g).

Our yacht has a chine hull. But this doesn't detract from the look, as the chines are largely rounded and, combined with the straight bow, give the illusion of a beautifully shaped hull. When sailing close-hauled, the stern of the MiniX lifts off, limiting drag in the water.

Technical data

model racing yacht plans

  • Overall length (with rudder): 56 cm
  • Hull length: 51 cm
  • Width: 17.6 cm
  • Draft: 25 cm (but this may change...)
  • Air draft: 92 cm (mast: 86 cm)
  • Operating weight (with sails, servos, batteries and keel ): 800 g
  • Bare hull weight (without servos and keel ): 260 g
  • Weight of ballast: 240 g (but may vary according to draught...)
  • Wing surfaces: Jib= 6 dm² GV= 15 dm²

MiniX drawings

model racing yacht plans

You can download the plans. They're simple and precise. We made our two boats by printing them on a basic A4 printer. Then we simply assembled the sheets by superimposing them and gluing them (repositionable spray glue) to Depron. A sharp cutter is all it takes to build the MiniX with precision.

Just one thing: we've put a lot of heart and soul into building this yacht. We'd be delighted if our experience could be put to good use. Don't hesitate, help yourself! But be so kind as to let us know with a little comment. We'd love to hear from you.

Here you can download the first part of the plan in A4 PDF format .

With this you already have the complete boat. Based on the construction photos, there's not much missing to build the whole MiniX. But since we're taking care of you, here are the sail plans too:

  • Mainsail plan

Real sails with webs for their shape.

The construction budget

model racing yacht plans

MiniX doesn't have to be expensive. We've always tried to find a way of "diverting" objects to make our project a reality. So it's hard to come up with an exact budget. It will be higher for someone who doesn't even own the basic tools , and much lower for someone who does it in the back of his already well-stocked workshop.

  • 6 mm Depron sheet (2 sheets, 125 x 60 cm)
  • Epoxy resin + fillers
  • Glass fabric
  • 4 mm plywood (a small piece for the keel , keel shaft and rudder)
  • Carbon tubes (6 mm for the mast and 4 mm for the booms)
  • GV carbon batten (1/10 mm in kite stores)
  • Remote control servos kit ( first price: ?60)
  • Florist paper for the sails (a good opportunity to give pleasure...)
  • Blenderm (surgical tape), available from chemists, to join the sails. Cut the 20 mm roll in half to double its length.

In the end, we estimate a maximum budget of ?120 per boat (calculated in 2021).

model racing yacht plans

Because a construction project like MiniX is above all a team project... And in a team it's good to be complementary.

The MiniX project went through a long phase of gestation - reflection - intellectualization - drawings - exchanges - helping hands to get to this stage. Today, it's sailing thanks to this pooling of skills. We hope you'll enjoy this project as much as we have. And we look forward to hearing from you in the comments or on the forum. Enjoy!

Sail Plans: Dimensioned and Balanced for the Marblehead Class Model Racing Yacht

by Walter K. Moss

Here in Wisconsin, where skippers frequently encounter high wind velocities during the course of our model yacht racing season, it is almost essential that our craft be equipped with first, second, and even third suits of sails, while the hulls themselves remain of such a design as to be driven easily on those days when the winds are light. This situation compels may of us to make more than a casual study of our sail requirements.

Naturally, every model yachter crowds the area restrictions on his No. 1 suit of sails in order to get the most out of his boat on the “light” days. When this suit (and the wind) causes too great a heel in the hull, with a consequent slowing-up of the speed, it is time to put on the second suit, continuing to the third, if the second proves too large. There doesn’t seem to be any hard and fast rule as to how much smaller the second and third suit should be, nor would this be practical, because of the variations in the different hull recovery powers. However, it is a fairly general practice to obtain the maximum area permissible in suit No. 1, 10 per cent less area in suit No. 2, and 20 per cent less than No. 1 in suit No. 3. If there are to be only two suits, the smaller might be 15 per cent less.

Many theories have been developed with regard to the ratios between jib and main areas, foot to hoist, and length of keel to foot. An effort has been made to consolidate the best of this information into the accompanying illustration and measurements. The relationship of all these factors has been given consideration as well as the balancing of the two suits of sails. On a conventional Marblehead design the sail plans suggested should prove most satisfactory, although it is generally advisable to follow the sail plans accompanying any hull blue print.

That every sail plan must be balanced on the craft with with it is used is a foregone conclusion, but once a balance has been achieved no further difficulty should be experienced when complete changes from first to second suits are made, as the general balance will remain approximately equalized.

Like the experienced golfer who finds that a balanced set of golf clubs improves his game, so you will find that a balanced set of sails will improve your yacht’s performance.

Suit No. 1 Mainsail: (61 x 19.5)/2 = 594.7 Jib: (40 x 10.2)/2 = 204.0 Total: 798.7

Suit No. 2 Mainsail: (52 x 16.7)/2 = 434.2 Jib: (37 x 8.5)/2 = 157.2 Total: 591.4

Center of Effort

Percentages.

Suit No. 1 Jib to Mainsail: 1 to 2.91 Foot to Hoist: 1 to 3 Area to Maximum Allowed by Rules: 99.9

Suit No. 2 Jib to Mainsail: 1 to 2.84 Foot to Hoist: 1 to 3 Area to Maximum Allowed by Rules: 86.5

Suit No. 1 Mainsail luff: 0.12 Concave and Convex Jib luff: 0.14 Concave Mainsail foot: 0.25 roach Jib foot: 0.75 roach Mainsail leach: 1.75 roach Jib leach: 1.00 roach

Suit No. 2 Mainsail luff: 0.12 Concave Jib luff: 0.16 Concave Mainsail foot: 0.25 roach Jib foot: 0.75 roach Mainsail leach: 0.75 roach Jib leach: 0.75 roach

Mast stepped 6″ ahead of center of lateral resistance on conventional design. Sail plans balanced to a 4″ mast rake. Center of effort of No. 2 suit 1″ ahead of that of No. 1 suit to balance heavier winds. Booms will clear water under average heeling of yacht in blows. Jib fore-stay is under 80 per cent height ruling. Spar lengths: mast 65.5, boom 21.5, jib-club, 12.2

Model Boat Builders Plans: One Metre Class Yacht Plans

The International One Metre boats are light, responsive and fun to sail. The class rule is ‘closed’ and many aspects of design, materials and construction are restricted in an attempt to promote close competition. However the rule is designed to allow the DIY enthusiast some freedom to construct an inexpensive and competitive boat. The important speed related criteria of length, draught, displacement and sail plan are limited to a maximum of 1000mm, 420mm, 4kg and 3 prescribed rigs. Please Note: These plans are printed to order and take approximately 7 days for us to obtain.
