VIC Aussie II    NSW AussieII    Stars &  Stripes

Member's yachts that have been built from the Victor Model Products series of yacht kits include the Australia II, America3, and Avalon 44. An Stars & Stripes is still experiencing a very long gestation period, but the expectation is, that it will soon join Australia II in my stable of elegant 12-metre yachts. As club boats they sail extremely well.

Some of these boats have a great following, particularly in the USA, but their popularity in Australia after an initial growth period, has declined due to the difficulty of supply. However, The Victor Model Products' Soling - A One Design Class boat which is a registered class with the New South Wales Radio Yacht Association, has a very ardent following in this land down under...

But in these pages we will concentrate on the 12-metres and the IACC type boats.

Sadly, the Victor Model Product boats, are no longer routinely imported into this country, and after having made personal enquiries, the cost of freight of individual purchases, makes the importation of these models, direct from Victor, a very expensive proposition.

This has to be one of the best photo's ever taken. Two beautiful boats, enjoying perfect sailing conditions...
A bit of a pity that the lake was running downhill... but the beauty and grace of the yachts, is evident...
