Welcome to the MCSA
The MC class is one of the top one-design sailboat racing classes in North America. The MC class is not just about racing -- it has also been described by many people outside of the class as a very enjoyable and fun group to spend a weekend with!
Please look around and explore the activities taking place at a nearby lake ( over 100 fleets can be found here: MC Active Fleet Finder) and see why we're so enthusiastic about this one-design racing sailboat. Looking to buy an MC? Go to the Forums menu section.
Introduction to our new website
This is the official website of the MC Sailing Association. The prior website is now off-line. You will find that most of the information from the prior website has been transferred to this website. We will continue to transfer any remaining information during the next couple of months. Custom items such as the National Standings will take more time because they require programming. When complete, we will roll them out.
Life member, Herman van Beek, created and maintained our prior website for the past two decades. He has been an invaluable resource for MCSA. We thank him immensely for his contributions. Take a look around. We hope you enjoy your new website!
Interested Parties: for those folks who are not members but want to stay in touch with the MC class, you may do so by signing up for our e-mailing newsletter using this link: Add Me to the Mailing List.
