With regattas hosted in the San Francisco bay area, Carmel, Monterey, Huntington Lake in the Sierras, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles and San Diego great competition is close by and always a challenge!

2016 Perry Cup Opener

whale1The best attendance in years, 14 Mercs entered the Perry Cup regatta at the Monterey Peninsula YC. The weather was sunny with a 8-10 knot north westerly breeze as the day began. There was a swell with a little chop as the racing started. Race one had a very tight race between Jim and Kathy Bradley and Doug Baird with Kate Conway. The course was a twice around sausage finishing downwind. Bradley won with some good upwind work and Baird second. Tim Cordrey and Chris Dever, who were racing a Merc for the first time in many years, did a fine job and placed third. Dave Morris and Jared January were threatening the top group and had to settle for fourth. Peter Baldwin and Walter Smith, home from their Cal 40 division win in the Pacific Cup, placed fifth.
