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.
