An ideal first boat:
One of the most popular types of boats sailed is the International One Metre (IOM). IOMs are created according to what sailors call a ‘box rule’. This means that its owner can create the boat in any way they want, but its length, height and weight must be within set parameters. The result is the ability for skippers to experiment with different ideas, and fine tune their boats to get the very best race performance.
Although there are other RC boats of a similar size, the performance across a wide range of wind and water conditions make the IOM the preferred boat for racing.
