Vimppeli, a Finnish model yacht from 1953

I've started a new 'Articles' section which will feature articles that I've collected. I expect they will be mostly radio sailing related, some in english, some in finnish or swedish.

This article, a piece of Finnish model yachting history published in a magazine called Joka Poika in 1953, is a plan and a building guide for a vane steered model yacht. At the end of the article an upcoming finnish championship with more than 20 of these boats taking part is described !

Thanks to Risto Tomminen for sending me this article. Risto had one of these boats and took part in the finnish championship in 1955.
