Commodore’s Message

Brett CrossWelcome to the Morro Bay Yacht Club web page.

Morro Bay Yacht Club was founded in 1956 and is located along California’s Central Coast, approximately half way between Santa Barbara and Monterey, which makes us a popular cruising stop. We have an all-weather harbor with fuel docks, nearby shopping, theatre, restaurants, and internet computer access at our city library.

We can accommodate visiting ocean cruisers up to 75′ at our dock or on our moorings (they’re on a first-come basis … no reservations). We welcome visiting yachtsmen to our activities: our clubhouse and bar are open for Social Hour every Friday night and, during the summer, our hamburger BBQ is on Wednesday nights.

We have an active ocean racing fleet which competes on Estero Bay and cruises further afield. Our one-design smaller boats compete on Morro Bay about twice a month. We sail under class, PHRF, and Portsmouth handicapping rules. The racing is not restricted to members but is open to all who have an interest in the sport and an appropriate boat.

Our Junior Yacht Club provides a social and recreational environment for those under 21 who have an interest in boating. The Juniors learn not only how to sail but also how to maintain the boats. In addition to sailing instruction and races, they also have social activities including barbecues, picnics on the sand spit, etc.

We look forward to your visit.
