MYC is an all-volunteer organization that has become a landmark for yacht racing in Massachusetts, as well as the Northeastern region of the US. Whether you are brand new to sailing or have extensive experience, MYC offers organized competition for all ages. We have hosted national sailing competitions as well as local and regional regattas.

2020 Commodore's Banquet - via Zoom!

Monday, November 9, 2020
   
 
   

On Sturday, 11/7/2020, we honored our awesome Commodore Jeff Jeffrey Sprung, who led us through this challenging Covid-19 year and made it possible for us to enjoy the club. We started with a great video by Anne Willetts Pennington https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NaNOh6y-MxI&feature=youtu.be, which was followed by a super presentation by guest speaker Paralympic Gold Medalist Maureen McKinnon. We gave out appreciation awards to the committee chairs and the board, awarded perpetual awards and sailing trophies. And we had 4 fun raffle baskets won by some very lucky people. Watch Sailmyc.org for the updates on who won this year - under About/Awards and under Racing /Race Results. Thanks to Ann Marie Rosa and her committee for a fun night on our Zoom virtual awards ceremony. Congratulations to all the winners!

 

 

MYC 71st Annual Regatta is a wrap!

Monday, September 14, 2020

The Regatta Annual Regatta was held on 9/12-9/13/2020 with 21 Sunfish on Saturday and 30 Lasers, RS Aeros and International Canoes on Sunday..While Covid-19 did cause us to make some changes to keep the crowd sizes under the 50-person limit required by Massachusetts rules, we still managed to put on a great event. And the reason for that is our awesome members and our awesome guests. Saturday brought us 6-10 MPH winds from the SSE and Sunday brought us about the same but from the SE.  PRO Jacon Mayer did a super job of getting races in and all the fleets enjoyed 8 races each day! We were able to provide box lunches at the end of the day and have a socially distanced award ceremony each day as well.

Thanks to all who came and helped and thanks to all our guests for coming. It was a great weekend!

2020 MYC Junior Regatta was a Great Success

Sunday, August 16, 2020

We had 11 boats and 14 juniors registered for the MYC 2020 Junior Regatta on Sunday 8/16/2020. PRO Greg Kampf did a great job of getting in 3 races in the windy, gusty, and often changing difrections conditions!  Jay McNeff assisted on RC and Evan Locke and Joe Honor were in the rescue boat.  One boat was taking on water, so the skipper came back in and opted not to try another boat, and he stayed back and watched. There were a combination  of Sunfish, 420's and Lasers out racing tofay. We had a few capsizes, but the kids got themselves back up and going and no rescues were needed. For the second year in a row, Melinda Goethert won the regatta, this time with 3 bullets. After racing, Don Williams and Diane Kampfcooked on the grill to feed the hungry sailors and Race Committee.  Congratulations to all the sailors.  You can find the full restuols here.  You can see the photos hree.
