Best Racing Venues In California!

 

For over 73 years the Mercury Class Yacht Racing Association (MCYRA) has been racing throughout California. For 2018 the class continues to thrive and grow with great racing throughout all of California.   We have expanded the class archive section with some great historical docs and images with more to be added. And as always use the site learn about our history of competitive racing on the water and and family oriented activities off the water.

In 2018 we continue to attract top sailors in the best California racing venues but we don't forget to have fun. 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! Our active regatta schedule has events occurring every month of the year.  Mercury sailboats are easy to store, trailer and launch. And you can get started on a budget with competitive used boats starting around $1000. For a closer look at a boat or a test sail as a crew contact a fleet representative

Homecoming Regatta Change Of Venue

To All Mercury Sailors:
This is to announce a change of venue for the Homecoming Regatta scheduled for October 20. The races will be held at Richmond Yacht Club (RYC) instead of Sausalito Yacht Club.
The organizers and members at Sausalito very much wanted to run this regatta again this year, but the hoist we used last year is no longer available, and there is no other hoist available in the town. For that reason only, SYC and the Mercury Fleet have mutually agreed to cancel Homecoming at SYC.

The vendor is aware of the problem and in the near future will have an update to fix the issue. Till then I have taken it down so you don't have to look at the spinning wheel. :-)
