Since its establishment in 1976, MSC has earned a good reputation in both cruising and racing. There are currently 140 members, who own 25 cruiser/racers, 5 adult dinghy’s, 20 junior dinghy’s.

From regular summer cruising along the west coast and its islands, to wilderness expeditions to the Antarctic and Artic, members have demonstrated their enthusiasm for sailing. On the racing front members have been to the fore in open events along the west coast arising from the very competitive club racing which has evolved at home at MSC.
