Best Racing Venues In California!


For over 72 years the Mercury Class Yacht Racing Association (MCYRA) has been racing throughout California. For 2017 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 2017 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

Saturday, September 23rd a fleet of 9 very competitive Mercuries raced a 5-race series on the City Front course.

The race committee set a weather mark ¾ mile to windward and the leeward mark was off Golden Gate Yacht Club. The start and finish line was from the Club’s race deck.
