Best Racing Venues In California!


For over 70 years the Mercury Class Yacht Racing Association (MCYRA) has been racing throughout California. For 2016 we have launched an updated website which will enable you to get the latest news from all your portable devices.  Explore the site to see our history of great racing with friends and family oriented activities.

As a competitive class attracting top sailors in the best California racing venues 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
