Mercury OD - Regattas, Results and Class Info - Updated 10/22/20

 

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 Nationals 📸

The Mercury Class 2020 National Championships were held at Cabrillo Beach Yacht Club this past weekend.
Despite the current situation with Covid 19 and the restrictions we are under here in California, the regatta was a big success! The L.A. fleet did a wonderful job of staying within the guidelines required by the state for social distancing and large group gatherings.

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.

From the Prez, October 2020...

Hello all Mercury Class members!

WOW, it’s already October! Where has all the racing been? Oh ya, it’s the year of the Covid!

It’s been a few months since I’ve given any kind of an update, so here’s what has been going on and what is scheduled to go on!

Huntington Lake: Doug Baird won the High Sierra……Jim Bradley and crew did a fantastic job putting on the races under the circumstances!

National Championships, CBYC: Chris Raab and Kenny Dair won their 8th Class Championship……Mike Burch and the Cabrillo Beach Yacht Club did a fantastic job of putting on a really good regatta. Due to the restrictions imposed by the state CBYC was not able to hold a dinner for us, so Mike arranged for BBQ brought in and cooked in the boat yard for the annual dinner. All turned out great!
