Below is a direct link to register online via Regatta Network for the SCYA Midwinters. The SI’s are published here as well as on our CBYC website.

RYC got off 4 races for 5 Mercs on Sunday. Attendance was down from the previous month for various reasons including a "Mast Suicide" when it leaped from the deck while traveling in Pacific Grove.

Once again the weather for this day was comfortable, but rather difficult to race in. The wind was from the same general direction, slightly N. West, with some shifts from the Southwest, that did not last too long. The velocity maybe 5 knots, but no more. There was little wave action that seemed to occur when the wind velocity eased a bit, make it more challenging.

Mercury Class Members!

Our 2017 Mercury Class Racing season is winding down; let us reflect on some of the highs and lows……It has been non-stop exciting sailing, starting with Perry Cup #3 in January.

President's Flagship

Hello, Mercury Class Members! It has been a busy summer of racing with many events still to come this year! Our 2017 Mercury Championships, hosted by the Monterey Peninsula Yacht Club, were nothing short of spectacular!

As noted in in this month's "From The Prez..." article the MCYRA approved the use of GPS course tracking for post race review. How do you do this easily?

August 2017
Mercury Sailors, Nationals Are At Then End Of the Month!
2017 MCYRA Flagship

Once again, the annual Mercury High Sierra Regatta was a big success! The lake was full of water, the weather and wind were perfect, and 23 boats came to compete! Pat Bradley, Peter Baldwin, and their support staff, pulled off another wonderful dinner on Friday night.

June 2017
Hello again Mercury Sailors!
2017 MCYRA Flagship

We have another new Mercury owner amongst us, Lyn Hines recently bought Merc. # 565 from Myron Erickson, and raced in the last Norcal series June 3rd. Myron, unfortunately for the Mercury Association is moving out of state, but appears he is moving onto new adventures. Myron will be missed on the water, and of course he is welcomed back anytime! We wish him and Nancy all the best!

The MCYRA now allows interested owners to use a desk stepped mast instead of the normal keelson stepped mast.

February 2017
Hello All Mercury Association Members!
2017 MCYRA Flagship

I am honored to have been elected the class President for 2017. Most of you have known me for many years, but those who don’t, I look forward to meeting each of you and working with everyone to promote and continually improve the class! I would like to acknowledge Eric Conn, who graciously served as class President for 3 years! What a terrific job he did keeping the class heading in the in right direction!

April 2017
Hello again all Mercury Sailors!
2017 MCYRA Flagship

April is upon us and much has happened since my last notes to all. First I would like to welcome new member and owner of Merc 530, Victor Piltch. Victor recently purchased the boat and will be working with Pax Davis to make some user friendly improvements (i.e. taking out the raised floorboards). We are looking forward to having them out on the water soon!

With a MCYRA class emblem decal! Thanks to Larry Nelson, MCYRA VP, vinyl class emblem window stickers are now available. 

Order one for each of your vehicles and give one to your crew member. 

The Weather Mark
September 2016

Thanks to a lot of work by our inland sailors, Pat Bradley, Peter Baldwin and others, Huntington was filled with plenty of water for the annual Huntington Lake Regatta. The lake also hosted the Mercury Class Championship Regatta. With twenty nine entries Huntington Lake finally seemed happy again, it’s longest standing sailing class had returned to celebrate and compete.

June, 2016

Here is a great idea from Larry Nelson, MCYRA VP, and owner of #548.  Each yacht club has newsletter either printed and/or online. The Mercury Class would benefit if an occasional bit of news or even a picture where included in various class member’s newsletters.

Great News! Hopefully by now every member of the Mercury family knows that Huntington Lake is on!
