Shoreline Model Yacht Club

Shoreline MYC has a new website. Click here to go to the new site and set your browser to www.shorelinemyc.org

The Shoreline Model Yacht Club website was created to keep members informed, and attract a broader audience by introducing ourselves to the community. We'll use this site to inform people about our club, share ideas, and organize events and activities.
The Shoreline Model Yacht Club was recognized by the American Model Yacht Association in December 2003. With 3 founding members, we formed to promote model yacht building and sailing. We meet at Shoreline Lake in Mountain View, CA. on Saturdays, year around for informal sailing and racing.

The our group sails on the third Saturday of each month, weather permitting. Follow the signs into the park directing you to the Lakeside Cafe/Sailing Center. We sail at the south end of the lake, near the golf course, on the lawn next to the Lakeside Cafe. Check the schedule on the Race Standings page for start times.

We welcome visitors and enthusiasts of all ages. Visitors are welcome to sail our boats and we are pleased to offer information and help for anyone interested in getting into model yachting.

The links provided below are for more information on the American Model Yacht Association and Shoreline Park, our sailing venue.
