The MC is a 16 foot long sail boat that is typically sailed single-handed, but can be sailed double-handed by lighter sailors. As one of the largest fleets in North America, the MC Scow® is a true Melges original. Designed,engineered and built by Harry C. Melges Sr. and Buddy Melges during the mid-'60s. There are over 92 fleets in the USA (we are one of the newest fleets). We now have 12 boats in our fleet...up from 1 just a few years ago!
The MC fleet is one of the newest fleet at the Saratoga Lake Sailing Club. We are active racers and invite you to take a test-ride in an MC .... maybe you'll get hooked and join us! We now have a "loaner" MC for anyone who is interested it taking a solo test ride. Contact us: Devon Howe, Fleet Captain.
There are several MC boats for sale in the Northeast region. Contact Devon Howe for more information.
Saratoga Lake Sailing Club sponsors MC regattas on a regular basis. We completed two MC regattas in 2015. Below is a photo from the 2015 MC Adirondack Regatta. Visit the MC website to read about this regatta and others www.mcscow.org
