Williamson County has become a prime destination for those moving to the Middle Tennessee area. The Westhaven community located on New Hwy 96 in West Franklin
is one of the most sought after neighborhoods. Westhaven's community offers a feeling of small-town life from a bygone era with resort-like amenities.
Westhaven's mixed-use Town Center incorporates condos, live/work townhomes, and businesses together. There is a full calendar of activities and events. With over half of Westhaven's 1,500 acres kept as green space, there is a park or open area within a few minutes walk of any home. In addition, residents are a short 15 minute drive from downtown Franklin.
The AMYA Website
mentions that, if you are a beginning skipper, click on the "Getting started" link on the left side of the page. Also, they invite you to check out their magazine — the only publication devoted completely to model yachting.
Westhaven Yacht Club is listed in the AMYA Club Directory
. WYC is one of only three such clubs in Tennessee — the others being in Chattanooga and Mt. Juliet. The AMYA publishes the list of sanctioned clubs widely, including on the Internet, so even non-members who are interested can locate a club and join in the activity.
On the AMYA Sanctioned Classes
page, yachts are organized into classes and listed alphabetically by size — very useful. What class of yacht is the best one to get? AMYA breaks it down:
1. The best class of yacht to get is the one that is sailed most often at your local club.
2. The one you fell in love with.
3. Either A or B
4. All the Above
Hint: There is no wrong answer.
