PMYC was formed in early 1963, and moved into its first clubhouse early in the fall of 1966, with a membership of over 125. We have been in our current facilities since 1968.

PMYC hosts the Wooden Hull One More Time Regatta each year in February, and the Stein Series which includes PHRF classes, and one-design fleets, usually in the late spring. We also sponsor the Heather Perkoff Series for PHRF and one-design fleets, and during the summer months, PMYC hosts the Women On The Water/Women At The Helm Race as well as South Bay Yacht Racing Club’s Special Events.

PMYC today remains one of very few yacht clubs that is still truly a ‘do-it-yourself’ club. Our club is still run completely by the members themselves with no paid staff. The club has always prided itself on its spirit of being the “most fun and friendly” club around. PMYC’s reputation in the yacht club community is well known for its hospitality and friendliness. As a result, PMYC is considered a must-stop for many cruisers who venture up and down the west coast of the United States and Mexico each cruising season. Many of these cruisers also make use of our club adjacent guest dock.

Reasons To Join Pacific Mariners Yacht Club

GET OUT ON THE WATER: PMYC activities give you many reasons to get on the water — which is why we love boats in the first place! Be it our annual Dinghy Raft-up, to spontaneous fishing trips, or day sails with your friends, PMYC finds dozens of new ways to hit the water. Reciprocal agreements with a large number of yacht clubs allow PMYC members to use their docks, moorings, & facilities all over the West Coast and around the world.

CRUISES: PMYC has a very active cruise schedule. There are at least five cruises scheduled every season. Enjoy the fun of cruising to spectacular locations and creating lifetime memories with PMYC friends.

RACING: PMYC sponsors a variety of sailboat racing series. More importantly, membership of PMYC allows you to participate in races from clubs all over the area. For cruisers or power boaters, there are numerous opportunities to crew on members’ sailboats.

FISHING: PMYC sponsors Kids Slip Fishing Events and local fishing tournaments. PMYC has a lot of experienced fishermen and tournament winners.

MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR VIEW: One of the joys of Marina del Rey is its physical beauty, day or night. PMYC has a spectacular view from the clubhouse and our two outdoor patios. Our casual facility has more than a 180-degree vista.

YACHT CLUBS WORLDWIDE: When traveling for work or pleasure, your PMYC membership card gives you access to yacht clubs across the nation and around the world. All you have to do is present your PMYC Membership card. But beware; most yacht clubs are not as casual or as fun as ours!

DO-IT-YOURSELF: PMYC is one of the last true Do-It-Yourself clubs in America. Every member is a vital part of this Club. We have no paid employees. If the membership doesn’t do it, it doesn’t get done, whether it is setting up for an event or planning the next cruise.

FANTASTIC MEALS: We have a fully outfitted professional galley. You can dine every Friday evening with your friends at PMYC. The Club sponsors high quality, low-cost meals that you are sure to enjoy. Of course, PMYC members prepare all meals. We also have great Monday Night dinners throughout the professional football season. There are also three outdoor grills both charcoal and gas.

AMAZINGLY AFFORDABLE: PMYC is very affordable, but like everything else worth having, it isn’t free. Have your morning coffee and read the newspaper on one of our two decks and you will have saved yourself $3.00!

GREAT SOCIAL CLUB: Ever wonder what to do with an empty weeknight or weekend? PMYC will help fill your social calendar. Our two gigantic HDTVs with a full assortment of sports & movies make watching your favorite team or flick an amazing experience. We also have lots of DVDs; a lending library; video games; a pool table; and free WiFi Internet access. Bands, dinners, movie nights, potlucks, dances, special events, BBQs, and mixers all with members who enjoy the yachting lifestyle makes PMYC the liveliest club in Southern California!

MAKE NEW FRIENDS: Perhaps the best reason to join PMYC is that it is a great place to meet people who share a love for the water and a passion for yachting. We pride ourselves on being an amazing mix of people & personalities. Our clubhouse is known as one of the friendliest places in Marina del Rey. Come on down & check us out!
