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.
