COVID UPDATE BULLETIN

CYC continues to support the cautious approach of the MA Reopening Advisory Board’s four-phased strategy of reopening and ask for your patience and flexibility.

As you can imagine, there are many changes required to safely run a yacht club and a sailing program in the current environment.

We will continue to detail and communicate these changes to you through emails and updates on the CYC web-site.

Sailing School parents, please check your email for a "What you need to know" from our program director dated June 26.

Welcome

Chatham Yacht Club (CYC) is dedicated to teaching sailing, promoting sailboat racing, and developing a community of sailors and their families. CYC is committed to the same principles that have guided it since its founding in 1921:

  • To provide sailing instruction to children, adolescents, and adults
  • To organize and sponsor racing experiences for all ages in the Pleasant Bay area of Cape Cod, MA
  • To foster its culture based on volunteerism, inclusion, and multi-generational involvement

CYC operates as a volunteer, non-profit organization that endeavors to foster a love of sailing and the creation of relationships and memories that last lifetimes.

    2020 MODIFIED COVID REGISTRATION

    Our class registrations are now open and available. If you plan for your child to participate in sailing school this season, we ask you to please register your child(ren) but please delay sending payment for classes. (Note that you will need an active family membership to register for sailing school.) While our ideal situation is to run classes as usual, we will be making accommodations as required by state and local health agencies, and government regulations. These may impact our schedules and what we charge for our classes. Knowing who is planning on participating in sailing school will help us plan the potentially adjusted class offerings.

    Here's a quick overview of sailing school classes during the week:

    THIS WILL BE MODIFIED FOR THE 2020 SEASON TO MEET COVID REQUIREMENTS.  PLEASE STAY TUNED FOR DETAILS.


    COMMUNICATIONS UPDATE
