I have read about passing options to classes in this thread, but do not understand what I'm doing wrong. My class is defined like so, using xkeyval and based on memoir.

\ProvidesClass{myclass}[2010/08/15 v1.0]

and I call it with this document:

    some text

But in the log I see that memoir is still loading the 10pt option:

File: mem10.clo 2008/01/30 v0.3 memoir class 10pt size option

How do I make the 11pt option available to the memoir class?

Use \PassOptionsToClass instead of \PassOptionsToPackage.
