Chatham Yacht Club

Teaching Love of Sailing on Pleasant Bay Since 1921 


CYC is a nonprofit organization and needs your help to run the program, keep boats maintained and keep our membership and class prices low.

As Chatham Yacht Club turns its attention to the next 100 years following its Centennial in 2021, it is imperative that we ensure the Club has the resources and foundation to thrive. We consequently are launching the Campaign for the Next Century


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.
