About us

A non-profit organization, MPYC is a yachting and social club comprised of adult and junior members with an interest in coming together to share in boating, sailing, yacht racing and social activities. Membership is not limited to boat owners.

Corinthian spirit


MPYC has built a reputation for top-notch competitive sailing. We host over 100 races per year and have hosted a variety of national championships.



Our members feature both power and sailboat owners. It's our great honor to live along California's Monterey Bay and enjoy the scenic vistas and marine wildlife.



Our beginning, recreational and advanced rowers enjoy short and long distance local routes in addition to competition in local, West Coast and U.S. regattas.


Youth Sailing

Since its inception, Monterey Peninsula Yacht Club has been proud to invest in the future of sailing and our youth to foster a better future for all us, and our club.


Whether on the water or onshore, there are activities for all ages at MPYC. From competitive sailing, ocean rowing, cruising or paddle boarding on the water, to an array of events on land or in the clubhouse, we celebrate the Monterey Bay and work to preserve it year-round.

MPYC Clubhouse

Our clubhouse on Wharf II at the Monterey Harbor is home to the Kilpatrick Dining Room and Bear Flag Bar. We are proud to host a variety of events including corporate gatherings, receptions and seminars.
