About Us

Founded in 2015, the Kensington RC Sailboat Racing Club was formed to provide an RC sailing venue for sailors on the west side of the greater Detroit area.  Kent Lake (central to the Kensington Metropark) is the beautiful sailing venue we enjoy.  Kensington Metropark is a beautiful facility and we are delighted to be able to enjoy the park and share RC sailing with the community.

Selling my mk1 foiler Mini40 cat - no rigs or electrics. Needs work/development which I don't have time for at the moment. £400 Can probably ship into Europe, but obviously this could be costly!

The 2017 KRCSRC schedule is coming shortly.  With almost zero effort, we are now up to 7 total EC12s (with 2 more looking for affordable boats for their kids).  The current thinking is having one scheduled evening per month, heavily supplemented by friendly, fun races planned in the short term based on weather and schedule using email and social media.  There is nothing worse than a long drive only to have crappy wind or a bad wind direction.  Our plan is to take significant advantage of our ability to communicate via social media and pick the best days to go sailing in highly enjoyable, high-quality conditions almost every time (rather than once in awhile)!  Sadly, we are not organizing formal DF65 racing for this year but will do so informally.  We do have several folks beginning to play with the foiling designs and wing sails!  Really cool stuff!  If you have any additional thoughts, send us a message!  Thanks, Sean.
I found a penguin in Australia!
EC12 travel trophies returned back to the 2016 NCR.  A joy to have them in Michigan.  Where o where is our Morgan Black trophy?  #shameshameshame
Good press for RC Sailing...
