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.
The 2021 MPYC Club ILCA (Formerly the Laser Class) Championships has been scheduled for May 8, 2021. Anyone interested in participating should review the Notice of Race and Register to reserve their spot in the regatta. All regatta documentation is on Regatta Network.
The Notice of Race encompassing the whole series is posted and registration is open for the 2021 CA Offshore Race Week. Encinal YC, Monterey Peninsula YC, Santa Barbara YC and San Diego YC are looking forward to hosting the offshore racing series again May 29-June 5, 2021.
