The Manila Yacht Club

The Manila Yacht Club in Manila, Manila Bay, Philippines | Yacht Club

The Manila Yacht Club, considered to be a social and sporting Mecca, is a members only club. Most of the sailing in Manila is based in MYC. It remains today as the country's premiere Yacht Club, owing to its strong reputation and rich historic past. The Club became a yachting hub in Southeast Asia committed to the promotion of sailing as a sport.
The racing season of the Club runs from September through May each year. One of its main events is the President's Cup Regatta which is held usually after Easter. This eagerly anticipated event began in 1993 as the Philippine Easter Regatta. It came to be known as it is today when then President Fidel V. Ramos requested The Manila Yacht Club to hold an international regatta during the APEC Summit held in the country in 1997. From then on, the event was renamed as the President's Cup Regatta.
It is a well-publicized and enjoyable sailing competition that gives the Club the opportunity to welcome overseas sailors to our shores and for our local yachtsmen to compete against world-class competitors.
The Manila Yacht Club also co-organizes and its members join other major international and Philippine yacht racing events. This includes the China Sea Race began by the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club in 1962. The other Asian regattas that MYC sailors join include the King's Cup of Thailand and Rajah Muda of Singapore.
