Card Sound Model Yacht Club

For over 30 years, the captains and mates of these radio-controlled scale replicas of America's Cup yachts have raced on Sunday morning each winter season. Races in the early years were held in the waters of Fairway Lakes. As time progressed, and endeavors grew more popular with members, the weekly races moved to the Swim Lagoon on Buccaneer Island, where some 12-15 or so yachts are in the competition each week.
