Wrapping up a successful Huntington Regatta thanks to all the work by Pat Bradley and team as well as Matt Jone. The Baldwin family did a great job of putting on a fun dinner. 

Mercury Sailors - 

The nationals will be sailed at Stillwater Yacht Club in Carmel on Stillwater Cove. This is an extraordinary venue! The Notice of Race will be out soon.

Part of SYC's charm is that we launch from the end of a pier and the club facilities are small (though the guest facilities at the Beach and Tennis Club are spectacular!). These two factors make the logistics challenging from a weighing and measuring perspective.

As such, if your boat hasn’t been weighed since 2018 please make every effort to get it weighed in advance.  You can find the class weight records here. If a weight does not appear for your boat in the far right column the boat should be re-weighed.

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!

The LAYC again hosted the PPC for the Mercury Fleet.

You can view the full LAYC race report here.

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.

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.
