Welcome to Massapoag Yacht Club

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.


The Club Look Great!

Sunday, July 25, 2021


Thanks so much to all who were able to make it yesterday for the club cleanup. The club looks GREAT!  Now we just need to keep it that way.  Read more about it in the Commodore's Corner here:


There is still a little work left to do and we need your help:

(1) The clubhouse deck, ramp and bathroom ramp need to be sealed. We would like to have a few people come on Sunday 8/1/2021 at 9AM to help with this project. Please let us know if you can help

(2) All boats and/or trailers/dollies, including kayaks and canoes, need to be labelled with your last name. The big boats now have a name on each trailer and we need the same for small boats. I used white duct tape with a Sharpie so these can be removed pretty easily if needed. Please, please, please get your small boats or trailer/dollies labelled.  There re a few trailers in the trailer storage area that don;t have names. Please get those labelled as well. It is important for us to be able to identify whose property is whose.

Please get your property labelled by 7/31/2021.  Any property not lebelled by then is subject to removal.

Thank so much!

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.


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.
