David Brawner, President of AMYA, spent the day with the West Valley RC Mariners in Arizona. He joined them for their regular Thursday Micro Magic event. David borrowed a boat and joined in with the other 12 or so for a somewhat unusual day in the desert. The wind was blowing!! "B" and "C" rigs were the choice of the day, but David held his own with several bullets and a bunch top three finishes. A good sailor and a great President! Many thanks to David for taking the time to visit with the WVRCM. They look forward to seeing him again in the very near future.
The new company is based in Korea. The latest news via the Micro Magic International Class is that the new company intends to continue production of the Micro Magic. However, there will undoubtedly be a period of transition where kits and parts are scarce while production is being relocated.
In the meantime, USA class activities will continue as planned!
Any new and pertinent information regarding the new company and Micro Magic production will be posted as it becomes available.

The United States Micro Magic Class Owners Association has been established to help promote and administer the sailing and racing of this phenomenal little boat and support sailors who have bought one. The US-MMCOA is affiliated with both theInternational Micro Magic Class (sailing under its class rules) and theAmerican Model Yachting Association, which is the governing body for model yachting in the US.

While the Micro Magic is an excellent one-design racing boat (actually designed specifically for racing), the boat is equally excellent for the casual day sailing enthusiast and this web site and class association are dedicated to being a resource for ALL Micro Magic skippers.
To register your boat with the US-MMCOA and to be assigned an official US sail number, you will need to download and complete the registration form from the 'class info' tab on this site and mail it to the Class Secretary (his address is on the form). There is a one-time $7 fee for registering, which must be paid to the Class Secretary to complete registration.
We feel that this is an exciting time and a unique opportunity to be in on the birth of a new class of boat here in the US.
The Micro Magic has taken Europe by storm! Don't just sit on the dock and watch. Get a boat and have some FUN!
