NOTE: COVID-19 Updates may be found at About/Commodore's Corner or in the news articles on this page

Massapoag Yacht Club was founded on the shores of Lake Massapoag in 1946. 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. We hold races from May to October for all sailboat classes including juniors. For details see our Events Calendar.

News

Lake Massapoag is closed for recreational activity - updated 7/19

Thursday, July 15, 2021

Update 7/19 - ban remains in effect. Two water samples will be taken, on 7/20 and 7/27, so if the samples are negative, the earliest we will hear anything new is 7/28. Thank you for your continued cooperation.

NO RECREATIONAL WATER ACTIVITY AT LAKE MASSAPOAG - EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY

A visible suspected cyanobacteria scum was just found and reported to the Massachusetts Environmental Toxicology program, which requires posting of no water activity signage and immediate closure of the lake. Please rinse off well at home as soon as possible.

The lake will remain closed until cleared by Mass DPH. Homeowners with lake access must also refrain from entering the water for any recreational activity.

Below are some resources to learn more about cyanobacterial blooms, including how they can be deadly for pets and livestock.

We will post updates as necessary. Thank you for your patience as we navigate this situation.

Should you have any questions, please contact the Board of Health at 781-784-1500 x1206 or health@townofsharon.org.

July 4th at MYC

Wednesday, July 7, 2021

      

WIth about 50 hungry people to feed, the July 4th Larry Lawrence Breakfast cooks had plenty of work to do! It was great to see so many people enjoying the breakfast and the fun at the club on the USA's birthday! After they served everyone else, Genn Robbins, Barry Kasindorf, Janet Forrester and Dennis Dubuc had a chance to relax for a bot and enjoy their own meal!  Dan Abram and Judy Deveau had the best hats for the occasion (see above).

Eric and Lynn Hemmendinger then hosted the boats for the decorating and fun races - what a blast! Can;t wait for next year!
