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.
