Mercury OD - Regattas, Results and Class Info - Updated 8/13/20

 

For over 75 years the Mercury Class Yacht Racing Association (MCYRA) has been racing throughout California. For 2020 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 2020 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

2020 Huntington Lake- Updated with Pics!

The Mercury Class, after a lot of planning on how to handle the Corona virus, held a 3 race regatta over the weekend. Prior to racing, the class developed a virus safety plan which was reviewed by the US Forest Service before they granted this year's permit. Social distancing was of primary concern so the skippers meeting was done on VHS radio.  The RC was moved from the beach to a boat off shore and the annual Saturday night Tri-Tip dinner was cancelled.

NorCal 3/7/20 Results

Encinal Yacht Club hosted an 8 boat Mercury fleet to kick off this year's four Saturdays of racing to determine who will be the 2020 NorCal champion.  The threat of rain in the morning may have discouraged a couple of sailors from coming out but for those who did, by the 12:30 start time the weather was perfect.  Breeze was a steady 5 to 7 knots with puff after puff rolling down the Estuary. Shifty was the word of the day but the shifts lead to a lot of position changes making for great racing for everyone.

From the Prez, April 2020...

Hello all Mercury class members near and far!

Not much to update since there has been no racing as of late……That being said, it sounds as if things might be starting to open up in the Bay Area. Moving into the first part of May, Cinco De Mayo or the ROC / SB Spring Regatta has been canceled, as well as Homecoming Nor Cal # 3 and So Cal # 3.

The Coronado Yacht Club still has the Small Boat Regatta set for June 13th and 14th. I will get confirmation if the event is still go. If things open up on the 15th of May for the state, I imagine they would still put the race on. Also, as of this update there is still no word on Huntington Lake……Seems there will be plenty of water, but nothing official yet.
