Founded in 1953 as a not-for-profit organization, the Monterey Peninsula Yacht Club is a yachting and social club comprised of over 400 adult and junior members who have an interest in sharing boating, sailing, yacht racing and social activities. Club membership is not limited to boat owners.
Mission: To connect our members and our diverse community to the boundless recreational opportunities and proper stewardship of the Monterey Bay and the Pacific Ocean.
Vision: To actively promote the Monterey Peninsula Yacht Club as a prominent West Coast destination of choice for Corinthian spirit yacht racing, recreational boating, rowing and cruising. We are committed to developing the next generation of sailors and boaters, and supporting a diverse membership that fosters inclusiveness, camaraderie, friendship, community involvement and leadership with the goal of advancing safe and sustainable maritime ecological practices.
