Interested in yacht racing on Long Island Sound? Come sail with us!
MSSA yacht racing involves competitive sailing in yachts in the twenty to fifty foot range. We conduct our races in four divisions (2 spinnaker, 2 jib-and-main) under the PHRF handicap system which theoretically renders all boats competitive regardless of design, size, or vintage. Generally fifty races of various types will be held between May and October (which does not include small boat and frostbiting events). Distances will vary from two to forty miles, while starting times will range from weekday evenings to weekends.
Our races are typically conducted in the waters immediately adjacent to Mount Sinai Harbor, with courses including both club-maintained and Government marks as indicated in the course chart below.
