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.
Click here to Join this site to participate in the forum and join in the discussions--keep up to date on all of the latest news for the US Micro Magic Class.
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!
The MicroMagic Region 7 Championship Regatta will be held on December 17 and 18. It will be in Punta Gorda and will be run by the Sun Coast Model Sailing Club. The regatta will be combined with the Dragon Force Regional Championship. The way we are arranging it, you will be able to sail in both if you have the stamina, mental and physical.
Some of you might be aware that Punta Gorda Isles runs an annual holiday boat parade. One of the SCMSC members (and new Dragon Force sailor) has a very nice house on one of the main canals. He opens his house for the boat parade to SCMSC members each year. That event is the Saturday of our regatta. After discussion with the club's board, we want to invite any participant in the regatta, including any significant other, to attend. Thank you, Richard!

Please check the MM Boat Registration File located in the Class Info' tab
Please make sure your Micro Magic is registered and that you are the current owner.
There are two or three Micro Magic's registered to some owners.....as you can see from the listing I cannot make out the correct registration #s of some boats as the numbers sometimes run together with no separation. Please advise me of the correct hull number and inform your fellow MM skippers to check their MMs on the site also. I will be updating the registration listing on a monthly basis.
Many thanks for your help with this important task.
Congratulations to Mike Eades on winning the 2015 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP REGATTA
Congraulations to Mike Eades on winning the 2015 Micro Magic National Championship regatta which was held on April 17, 18 and 19 at Estrella Mountain Ranch Community Lake in Goodyear, Arizona, hosted by the West Valley RC Mariners.
The venue was superb and The West Valley RC Mariners did a fantastic job running the regatta over the three days under the leadership of the RD Al Stiewing and his crew. 18 Skippers attended the event which allowed for single fleet racing.
Mike Eades commented on the win as follows "If you examine the detailed scores you will see what a competitive event it was. Nine of the 18 skippers took bullets and all of the top 6 took at least five! After 40 races (6 throwouts) to come out ahead of Baron by only 6 points shows how tight everything was. Great racing and socializing with a fine bunch of skippers, Race Officials and volunteers. Thanks to all who took part!
