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.

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.


To: Monterey Peninsula Yacht Club Members

In light of the current situation unfortunately we have had to postpone the Maiden World Tour, but do hope to be able to restart later in the year. With Maiden being unable to keep the project running until such time as we can return to normal.  Our work with empowering girls through education has proved such a success and Maiden is needed now more than ever.

The shop is open and we wanted to give friends of Maiden the opportunity to look in advance at our Auction Items.  To that end here is a private link

If the Monterey Yacht Club or its members wish to purchase one of these iconic and unique items before they are auctioned, the following prices will secure your choice and remove it from the Auction before it commences on 5th May exactly 30 years after Maiden began the final leg of the WRTWR;

  • Wheel £7,000
  • Compass £12,000
  • Painting £22,000
  • Grinder £6,000
All items are plus P&P

Please stay safe and stay well and we will see you when Maiden visits Monterey again.

Warm wishes
