We are an organization devoted to having fun on the water with friends. We race sailboats, cruise and party. What's not to like? There aren't any stuffed shirts in our club; any of our members will help you out if you need a hand dropping a mast or installing a fitting.

Tri-Service Regatta

America/New York

The most important racing event of the year, the Tri-Service Regatta, is less than two weeks away. More than anything else, OPCYC’s dominance of this competition defines our club and highlights our team spirit. We need to muster all Pointers with sailboats to the start line on Sep 13th to defend the Cup! The race scoring rewards both performance and participation. That means we need all our regular OPCYC Yankee Station racers to be there and as many daysailors, weekenders and long-distance cruisers as possible. If you don’t have a boat, crew for someone who does.
