History of the Club
Founded in 1969, MYC provides a safe well-regulated locale for pleasure sailing yachts, sailing dinghies, catamarans, paddleboards, kayaks, and more.
We are located on the United States Western most territory of Guam, approximately 3,300 miles West of Hawaii, 1,500 miles East of the Philippines and 1,550 miles South of Japan and welcomes visiting sailors and yachtsmen from around the World.
MYC's programs and events include our Youth Summer Sailing program led by US Sail Certified instructors. Camps and clinics offer a wide range of choices from Learn-To-Sail classes to Racing Seminars. Many of these programs are discounted for MYC members, and most are open to members and non-members.
Both our Annual Goodwill Regatta Laser racing between Guam and Japan and our Annual Guam-Rota Keelboat Race are annual and long standing traditions celebrating almost 40 years! Across the years it has hosted international events, including Japan to Guam Race, the Auckland to Fukuoka Races, the Asia Pacific Laser Championships, two South Pacific Games.
Members of the Marianas Yacht club are our biggest asset and have a long tradition of volunteerism - this spirit strengthens the sense of community and keeps our cost structure affordable. Whether it is a club work party, a social activity, or race management - members are always willing to pitch in to make sure all feel welcome and leave with great memories.
