Sailboat Classes We Race
The DragonFlite 95 is arguably the fastest growing class in the U.S. NMYC's DF95 fleet is over 45 sailors strong, competitive, and alternates between scored and fun races to encourage maximum participation.
The boat is 95cm in length and arrives 90% ready to race. Just rig the sails, add batteries, and bind the receiver with the transmitter.
The D-95 Red and White Fleet Captain is David Boulanger (email@example.com)
NMYC hosted the AMYA's DF95 National Championship Regatta in November, 2017. 40 plus skippers from 4 countries and 10 states participated in this great event.
Check out the DF-95 tuning guide updated January, 2018.
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.
John Jerse (firstname.lastname@example.org) is serving as interim as Fleet Captain.

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 ponds.
Several members of NMYC race in six Regattas around the state from October thru April.
