Boat Classes We Race
The EC-12 is the largest boat sailed by the club. The EC-12 is approximately five feet long with a mast standing six feet over the deck. The EC-12 weighs in at 23 pounds. Being a larger model with a graceful design, the EC-12 sails and handles much like a full sized boat.
The original EC-12M hull was a towing tank model for a Charlie Morgan twelve meter. The hull design sheds dead leaves and other flotsam, an important feature when sailing on inland lakes.
Several members of NMYC race in six Regattas around the state from October thru April.
Contact Ted Flack, (firstname.lastname@example.org) EC-12 fleet captain for more information.
The Seawind One Design Class is39.3 inches long with a beam of 8.9 inches weighing 6.5lb minimum. The sail area is 604 square inches. KYOSHO manfactures the Seawind.

The DragonFlite 95 is the newest class that is actively raced by NMYC members. The attraction is a boat that comes 95% ready to race. All you do is rig the sails, add the batteries and bind your receiver and transmiter.

NMYC sponsored the AMYA National Championship D-95 Regatta on November 10 - 12th, 2017. Over 40 skippers from 4 countries and 10 states participated with great competition.

The little brother of the DF-95 the DF-65 is a smaller version, but it has all the "go fast" features of the 95 like carbon fiber keel, drum winch room for a four pack LIFe battery pack and rigging just like the 95.
