Graciously hosted by the Monterey Peninsula Yacht Club

The main event is two (or three, time permitting) easy-going, friendly cruiser-style races on Saturday. One course is specially designed for new sailors. The whole day is designed for non-racers, so don't be afraid to join us, even if you've never raced before. We have simplified regatta rules for non-racers; all you need to know is the ordinary "rules of the road" for sailing. (Click here for the Eligibility and Regatta Rules.)

After the races, the party begins.  Join other participants immediately after the races at the Monterey Peninsula Yacht Club for hors'deuvres and an open bar. The awards ceremony will begin at 5:00 p.m. at MPYC.   Most will be staying overnight at the Monterey Municipal Marina in Monterey Harbor.    After the awards, dinner will be served at the yacht club.  Your registration includes one dinner ticket.  Although we prefer that you order additional awards ceremony dinners at the time of registration, additional dinners can be purchased at check-in or at the club Saturday evening.

On Sunday morning, free coffee will be served at the Monterey Peninsula Yacht Club or you may go to a local restaurant for a full breakfast. There'll be plenty of free time for sailing, socializing, and hanging out at the yacht club on Sunday.

You don't have to race to join the party. If you'd rather day sail than race, that's fine -- come and join us! Just check off the appropriate boxes on the registration form for the activities you want to attend.

In July 2014, over thirty boats registered for the regatta. There were skippers of all skill levels and boats of every description -- and everybody had a great weekend!  To see what a great time we all have at Cruiser Challenges  here is a video by Sean Mulligan, a Cruiser Challenge XII participant.
