Mercury OD - Regatta Info, Results and Class Info - Updated 12/8/19

 

For over 74 years the Mercury Class Yacht Racing Association (MCYRA) has been racing throughout California. For 2019 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 2019 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

2019 Perry Cup #1 (Monterey Invitational)

The November Monterey Perry Cup is the first of a four weekend series, held at the Monterey Peninsula YC. It started with a strong turnout of 13 boats. Monterey is a venue where you thread your way through seals possibly whales and Dive boats are obstructions. What was exciting was to see such a mix of geographical, crew make ups and new faces. Crews came from Fresno, Santa Cruz, San Francisco Bay Area and Monterey.

The Fall Regatta in San Pedro last weekend was lucky to get a friendly turnout, and some great sailing conditions on the Saturday. Straightforward 2x around with the luxury of leeward gates made sailing fun without the traffic jams and elevated pulses.

This past Saturday the first Annual Fall Mercury Regatta  was kicked off at the Richmond Yacht Club.

Nine  boats started in a 12+ knot gusting breeze which was kicked up by a passing front. Before and after Saturday, much calmer conditions... "you should have been here last week"  

None the less, despite the rowdy conditions, we had a big turnout of new faces.

From The Prez, December 2019...

Hello again all Mercury Class members near and far!

Yes itโ€™s been awhile since I have address the class with an update. So have a seat, sit back, and hold on as I recap the last part of our 2019 and give you some of whatโ€™s ahead for 2020!

Since we last talked we had just completed our High Sierra Regatta. Big thanks to Pat Bradly, Peter and Lynn Baldwin, and their large support staff for once again making the event spectacular! Fast forward to the Labor Day regatta, 12 boats participated in what is probably one of the most beautiful venues the Mercury Class races in. Dick Clark and his top notch race committee crew did another wonderful job. The sunset Saturday night while we enjoyed the BBQ dinner was magnificent!
