The 7th Massapoag Yacht Club Annual Sunfish/Laser Regatta is coming next weekend, May 31, 2014. Come down and pit your racing skills against some of the best Sunfish sailors the region has to offer.  If you are an old pro, or new to racing, please come down. We will be running A and B fleets, so if you are new to racing, you still have a chance to show your stuff. MYC PRO Greg Kampf is famous for knowing the lake and for running excellent regattas, so I know that the racing will be top notch.

The visiting championship Sunfish skippers always provide excellent racing, plus they are gracious enough to share their racing knowledge with everyone, so the regatta often becomes a Sunfish racing clinic as well as a regatta.

Once again this year, we've scheduled this regatta the week before the Regional Championships in Barrington, so it is the last chance to get some racing in before the Sunfish regional Championships.   Come on down and race!

The NOR and Registration forms are Here on the Club Web Site.


  1. Have you got any photos of Lasers racing at MYC in 30 knots that I can use to drum up some enthusiasm for the regatta with local Laser sailors? We Laser sailors like to imagine that we enjoy racing in those sort of conditions.

    1. I would, but the regional Laser rep scheduled the Laser Masters that weekend last year, so no Lasers showed up.

  2. Oh God! Yes! The day that the Newport Bridge smashed into me! I had almost forgotten!

    New England Masters.

    You don't have a big suspension bridge at Lake Massapoag do you?

  3. The Laser regional rep last year was a real deadbeat but the guy this year has skillfully arranged to have the New England Laser Masters on a different weekend from the world famous Massapoag YC Annual Regatta. And neither venue has a moving suspension bridge. So I am sure you can expect a huge Laser fleet at your regatta in September. 6 maybe even 8 boats is not out of the question.
