CMYC was established 35 years ago in 1986.  Our sailing fleet consists of  East Coast 12 Meter (EC12), Soling One Meter (S1M) ( 2 of the largest AMYA Class registrations), DragonFlite 95's (DF95)(one of the fastest growing fleets in the USA) a quick, easy to sail and affordable RC boat and our newest fleet, International One Meter (IOM).

Guests are welcome to come and sail with us any time, whether you are an experienced sailor or would just like to learn. Open sailing with any sailboat class sailors are welcome.

If you would like to learn, the best place to start would be with the DF95 or S1M fleet.​

​We welcome all sailors of all RC boats with many of our members owning 3-4 different class of boats from Soling, EC-12, DF95, IOM, Marblehead M, American M /Vintage Marblehead M, or Laser . Bring your boat and we will race.
