MPYC Burgee

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.

Our Mission: MPYC connects our members and guests to the boundless recreational opportunities, and proper stewardship of the Monterey Bay and the Pacific Ocean.

Our Vision: The Monterey Peninsula Yacht Club actively engages in Corinthian sailing competitions, recreational boating and cruising, development of the next generation of boaters, camaraderie, friendship and community involvement, leadership and embodiment of sustainable maritime ecological practices.


THE RED CARDS ARE DEAD!!!  Only the new cards/fobs will open the front door.

If you signed up for but haven’t picked up your new card/fob. They will be mailed out in the next couple of weeks.

If you have not "signed up" and told us what you and/or your spouse want to use for access, a card or a fob, you can let us know by doing one of the following:

  • Filling in a paper form available at the clubhouse and putting it in the House Manager’s box
  • Email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

If you requested two access tokens, you will be billed $10 for the second one.

Thanks again to all the hard work by Louis, our illustrious IT person, Dylan and Fritz. This would not have been possible without their efforts.

The new system will accept either a programmed card the size and shape of a standard credit card or a programmed key fob. MPYC will provide each active member with clubhouse access one card or fob free of charge. A second card/fob for the spouse is $10.

The new fobs/cards will all have unique identities and will be registered to individual members/spouses. This will give MPYC the ability to manage individual members clubhouse access. Cards/fobs can be deactivated when lost or when a member separates from MPYC.

The fobs/cards have a “read range” of about 4” so the door sensor should be able to read the fob/card without removing it from a wallet or purse. The fob/card needs to be “presented” to the door sensor and held there for approximately 2 seconds.
