MC Fleet 92 hosted the MC Horse Race on May 20-21, 2017. We had 19 competitors on the line and completed 4 races on Saturday. The first two were quite challenging, as winds were gusting over 20. The two afternoon races were more civilized. Nathan Kotz and crew from Boston took 1st place. 2017 MC Horse Race Results

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 104 fleets in the USA (we are one of the newest fleets). We now have 13 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.
