vintage sailboat search
Next year, CPMYC will celebrate our 100th Anniversary. As part of the festivities we'd like to display vintage boats that saw time on Conservatiory Water over the years. If you have one stashed in the basement or attic, please contact us with details.
Besides racing model sailboats, a lot of our members are into designing and building their own pond yachts, from world class racing IOM’s to vintage-design boats. We’re happy to share resources and tips with anyone who's interested. (Read More)
