Mascoma Sailing Club

The Mascoma Sailing Club  is
located on South Main Street, Enfield, next to the Northern Rail Trail on Mascoma Lake.

Our mission is to make the sport of sailing affordable for everyone. We are saddened that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot offer our Thursday evening sloop events or our Women Can Sail program to the Enfield community this summer until the Health Department relaxes social distancing requirements.

The club is open from May until the end of October. Members who own boats are able to leave them at the club, using shore facilities or Club moorings. The Club also owns sailboats that are available to members who are experienced sailors.

Sloop races are held according to the interest among the membership. Through an affiliation with the Northeast Sailing Association, members may participate in NSA-sanctioned regattas held throughout northern New England.

Those who join the Club can make use of the Club's two Javelin, a Rhodes 19, and two Lasers on dollies, provided that one is a qualified skipper who has had an orientation to the boats. Membership forms and boat use policies can be found in the set of links in the left column of this Web page.

The Sailing Club includes Enfield residents among its members, and as a Club, we try to give back to the community that has been so welcoming to us.


The Sailing Club aspires to be a community resource that provides a way for interested Enfield residents to explore the sport of sailing. We regret that we cannot offer our programs this summer until social distancing restrictions are lifted by the State of New Hampshire.
