The Monterey Peninsula Yacht Club has a long and rich history of Yacht Racing.  From its inception in 1953 MPYC has been sponsoring yacht races on the Monterey bay for both MPYC members and racers from other clubs.  At present the Club sponsors over 100 races a year from the favorite Wednesday night "beer Can" races to the 100KM Spinnaker Cup from San Francisco to Monterey and everything in between.  The club has an excellent history hosting National and regional regattas and a very active and successful Junior and Summer Sailing programs consisting of both educational and competitive events.  In some of our races, some of our racers have been using an online tool to track their progress, you can watch live feeds and replay some past races.

The New Victoria Fleet

The size and participation in the Victoria fleet is building quickly, primarily because buying and maintaining a boat is extremely inexpensive and you are -almost- guaranteed to not get wet during the race.
