Fair weather, steady winds for Big Canoe’s model yacht club

Photos by Jim Francis.

DSC 0016Smoke Signals photographer Jim Francis couldn’t resist the lure of sleek model yachts sailing across a peaceful lake on a beautiful morning. He snapped these photos on Sept. 10 at Lake Sconti, mostly from the small pier. “This is left of the beach and the Canoe Lodge. Model Yacht Club members sometimes go over there and sail their boats,” said Francis.

The next regatta—weather permitting—will begin at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19, at Lake Sconti location. BCMYC is an officially sanctioned RC Sailing Club of the American Model Yacht Association.

The Hands on the Helm program continues every Tuesday, 4 p.m., on the beach behind the Canoe Lodge and meetings are the third Friday of every month at the Village Station. The club is open to all interested Big Canoe residents. For more information, go to www.bcmyc.org.
