RC Micro Magic Sailing European Championship 2010
Lake Balaton (HUN) 02-03/10/2010
The MICRO MAGIC is a small remote controlled sailing boat designed and manufactured as building kit by Graupner in Germany.
Since its introduction in 1998 many skippers already have made the experience that this model is no primitive toy just for the bath tub even if its small dimensions may suggest it on first sight, and some may have had doubts about its performance. But the tiny thing does really sail very well indeed! No surprise, as priority during the design process was given to the sailing performance.MICRO MAGIC was designed to show that also very small rc-sailing boats can give lot of sailing fun as well, if not more so than larger ones.In a way the boat is similar to a half-sized early international one metre (IOM)-boat, and some construction details were copied from that class.
The small size makes it the ideal boat for holidays, or for sitting in the boot of the car all day waiting for a free minute or twoFully rigged and ready to sail, it easily fits into any car and none of the common transport problems known from bigger boats have to be dealt with.
