Founded in 1947, the Centerport Yacht Club has served for almost sixty years as a boating and social activities focal point for the boating community in and around Centerport, NY, on Long Island''s North Shore. One-design racing has been an institution at CYC since the club was founded.
The fleets that raced in the early years were Lightning's, Comets, Thistles, Stars and Penguins. In the 1960's the Luder-16 class became very active, until it disappeared around 1982. The Ensign class became active in 1963, and is still going strong. The J-24 fleet became active several years ago but does not race under the Tri Club Association. The latest addition to one-design racing is the Ideal 18. The J-24s, Stars, Ensigns, JY-15s and Ideal 18s are actively raced today.
