About the Master Mariners Benevolent Association (MMBA):
The MMBA dates back to 1867 when it gained recognition after staging a successful boat race at the San Francisco Fourth of July Celebration. This became a popular Fourth of July tradition, as the never disappointing San Francisco winds promised an exciting race, and rowdy participants battled with fists and sails for the prize banner that read "Champion." The MMBA still holds an annual regatta on Memorial Weekend and crowns a champion at the awards party, in addition to a variety of other nautical-themed events.
