The Lee Valley Model Yacht club website has an excellent introduction to model yachting

The Model Yachting Association is the governing body in the UK. The For Sale page of the MYA website is a good place to buy secondhand yachts.

There are a number of good websites that cover how to set up and tune a one metre yacht, including:

Broads Radio Yacht Club – Technical Page

First Timers Guide to Setting Up a One Metre Yacht – Ivor Brittle
