Racing

The Monterey Peninsula Yacht Club has a long and rich history of yacht racing.  From its inception in 1953 MPYC has been sponsoring yacht races on the Monterey Bay for both MPYC members and racers from other clubs.  At present the club sponsors over 100 races a year, from the favorite Wednesday night "beer can" races to the 100km Spinnaker Cup race from San Francisco to Monterey, and everything in between.  The club has an excellent history hosting national and regional regattas and very active and successful Junior and Summer Sailing programs consisting of both educational and competitive events.

In addition to the Championship Series, the Club has over the years developed a separate program consisting of twenty traditional races. These have become a permanent feature of the racing scene on the Monterey Bay. The following gives some information on the origin of these special races.
