In 2017, IOD racing arrived at the Manhattan Yacht Club. For the first time, these classic yachts sailed in front of the skyline of Manhattan. Now, the MYC IOD fleet has grown to 6 boats, Black Arrow, White Arrow, Instigator, Zephyr II, Sterling & Duchess.
Our start at the Manhattan Yacht Club is 80 years after they started racing IODs at the Larchmont Yacht Club. In this case, we are not the “early adapters.” But we are very enthusiastic, nonetheless!
We race the IODs on Thursday evenings as well as Saturday afternoons. Each IOD is owned by a Member or group of Members and you have to be a Member to participate in the races.
