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 coming together to share in boating, sailing, yacht racing and social activities. Club membership is not limited to boat owners.

MPYC maintains a clubhouse with a staffed bar and galley, but relies on volunteer efforts for all other functions, which provides many and varied opportunities to participate. The clubhouse is available for rental for private parties.

With its small family character, the club has established a reputation among the West Coast yachting communities for warm hospitality, friendly competition, and above all, lots of fun. MPYC runs over 100 sailing races each year, has hosted numerous national racing events, and enjoys stature as a major yacht racing club.

The Monterey Peninsula, blessed with natural beauty, a protected harbor and an abundance of marine wildlife, offers a rich tradition surrounding the sea and many guaranteed opportunities to enjoy its benefits.  We invite you to join us in expanding your enjoyment of the sea. If you would like more information about the Monterey Peninsula Yacht Club, please call and ask for the Club Manager, the Commodore or the Membership Chairperson.

Last week, Member Ashley Hobson virtually checked in with Commodore Michael Polkabla, Vice Commodore Jean Dupreez, and General Manager Dylan Jones to discuss how the pandemic is affecting MPYC.

Club leadership continues the process of taking steps in reopening our clubhouse facilities and activities to our membership using a strategic phased-in approach.
