Welcome to Massapoag Yacht Club

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.

National Invitational Tournament at MYC by SHS Coach Gary Werden

Friday, June 3, 2022

On May 21 and 22 Sharon High School hosted the NIT team race regatta.  Schools from Chicago, Norfolk, Annapolis, Seattle, Connecticut, and Massachusetts competed.  Team racing pits 3 boats on one team against three on another team in 10-12 minute races on an “N” shaped course.  Slowing opponents using wind dynamics and the Rules of Sailing can be as important as simply going fast.  It makes for lots of close sailing action.  Order is kept by the five umpires who penalize rules infractions immediately after they happen. 

Saturday began with no wind.  The wind came in at 8-12 MPH in early afternoon and racing continued until 7 PM.  Sunday’s wind was dependably 6-10 MPH and the regatta was completed at 65 races. 

Race management and umpiring were led by nationally certified officials with very capable assistance from some of MYC’s best sailors.  The Sharon High parents provided seemingly non-stop food service with two breakfasts, two lunches, and even emergency pizza when sailing ran late on Saturday. 

The Seattle team said “It was the best high school regatta we’ve ever been to.”

Winners: SUNFISH - Stewart Draheim, LASERS - Nathan Jensen, RS AEROS - Phillip Myerson

Thirty nine boats signed up for the MYC 14th Annual Small Boat Regatta on 5/28/2022. It was a great day for racing! Winds were 6-10 from the South after shifting fromt he SSW early in the day.  The predicted rain held off long enough for Greg Kampf and the Race Committee to run 6 races for each division.  Diane Kampf and crew managed things on shore and made sure everyone got registered, checked in and fed. Thanks to all the participants and support team memebrs for another successful event for MYC. Jeff Sprung and Kate Sharp took some pictures of the event and you can see them here. Full results are under Racing/Race Results or on Regatta Network here.
