Chatham Yacht Club
Teaching Love of Sailing on Pleasant Bay Since 1921
August 12, 2023 Regatta Edition
A giant thank you to all of our amazing volunteers who put in countless hours to ensure we all enjoyed an epic regatta weekend. What beautiful weather we enjoyed! (thank you Nikki Bartlett for holding off the bad weather for a few days).
Without your help and cooperation, we simply would be unable to host this, the 102nd Chatham Yacht Club regatta. One of the oldest regattas in the country - and certainly one of the very few that remains free to our participants.
Please extend a massive thank you to our commodore Marshall Bartlett, and Ted Dickson, co-chairs of the Race Committee, and to Bart Wesp who is always on hand to extinguish the many emergency situations that can arise during these gatherings.
Below please find a listing of the (over 100) volunteers who contributed to our success.

One of the unique and popular aspects of our Regatta is the trophies. David Spring painted another beautiful watercolor which he printed, framed, and DONATED as trophies. We also use the image on our Thank You certificates for our volunteers

Removing your boat from CYC:
No boats or sailboards may be carried over the hill to be launched at CYC. Launching may take place at Jack Knife Harbor, the Town Landing on Crow's Pond, Ryder's Cove or in Round Cove, permits may be required.
Transportation of 420s and Optis over the hill for the purpose of attending regattas during the summer may occur ONLY before sunrise and after sunset per our lease with Eastward Ho!
There are a few small yard work chores around the clubhouse that still need to be done. Anyone interested?
Are you handy or willing to learn? Looking for a new title? CYC needs Fleet Captain's for the sailboat fleets who can help with minor repairs as needed.
Please contact Bart Wesp @ email@example.com.
Trophy Engraving & Return
IF YOU HAVE NOT RETURNED YOUR TROPHY - PLEASE DO SO QUICKLY SO THAT WE HAVE FOR OUR AWARDS MEETING NEXT WEEK.
Reminder - If you won one of the CYC Awards or Season Series trophies last year, you are responsible for getting your name engraved onto the trophy.
East Coast Engraving in Hyannis closed permanently last week (!). The best option now seems to be CCI Engraving at 474 Station Ave, South Yarmouth - take old Exit 8 and go South - it will be in a shopping area on the left (across the parking lot from Marathon Sports). Their phone number is 508-398-4433. There is a one-time set-up charge of $25 for each trophy, but once it is in his system the same trophy can be engraved each year without that additional charge.

2023 CYC Sailing School Staff:
New this summer! CYC sailor and junior instructor, Harrison Kintz, is offering private and semi-private rowing lessons for pre-sailors and young sailors (as well as sailor parents) on the club beach. The 45-minute lessons will introduce students to the basics of dinghy rowing—while building confidence around boats and the water. In addition to rowing instruction, lessons will teach students about the parts of a boat, rowboat safety, and simple knot tying. For more information, please contact Harrison Kintz at firstname.lastname@example.org or text Harrison at 703-298-0818. Alternatively, feel free to contact CYC parent, Liz Kintz, at 703-258-9021 or email@example.com.
The new parking lot configuration allows for multi-directional Fox Hill Road access from three points as illustrated in the diagram below. It is essential that all CYC traffic use the third entrance on Fox Hill road to minimize the access traffic and pedestrian hazards in the other parts of the parking area.
The added parking has improved parking but we, EHCC and CYC, need to continue to optimize on the available parking with the following actions;
Sailing School morning classes
CYC instructors will be available to help students to and from the CYC club house so parents can enjoy the convenience of “drop and go” noted by the yellow cross-hash area. Before 11:30 am, parking maybe available on a first-come, first-serve basis in the designated area, highlighted in green box, for parents to bring their children to classes, meet the instructors and fellow parents. Please be aware this area is not exclusive to CYC but shared with EHCC. If there is a shortage of parking spaces in the designated area, please park on the shoulder of Fox Hill Rd. “Pickup and go” will also be available for your convenience at the conclusion of morning classes at the Pick-up spot shown in the diagram. This is a safer and shaded location where our students can be ready for pick-up.
Parking begins to get busy around 11:30 when Eastward Ho! Lunch service begins. After 11:30, We ask that CYC members park on the Fox Hill road shoulder during lunch if the north lot is busy.
Afternoon classes and races
Due to the limited amount of parking spaces, Parents are encouraged to enjoy the convenience of “drop and go” where appropriate for the children. Parents who would like to see your kids in action during the afternoon races can check for available parking spots in the designated (green) area after 2 PM. If there is a shortage of parking spaces at any time, please park on the shoulder of Fox Hill Rd.
Eastward Ho! will have parking lot attendants available to assist with traffic flow and direct CYC members to the designated (green) area. Please don’t hesitate to speak with them if you have any questions or need assistance.
As always, safety is paramount as we balance convenience and consideration for a shared parking resource with our friends at Eastward Ho!
Thank you for your cooperation as we begin a new exciting season at CYC!
Courtesy and Safety on the Golf Course
An average golf ball leaves the tee traveling 115 mph or more, and our path to CYC takes us right in front of the first tee. Adults and children need to take care as they cross in front. Eastward Ho! has provided a fence to protect us. CYC members should stop at the edge of the fence, look and assess the situation. Always wait while golfers are teeing off, but if the golfers are waiting, they may signal it is safe to cross. Be aware as you approach the ninth green as well, since it is just beyond our path.
Eastward Ho! and CYC have a great working relationship, but it depends on CYC members being courteous to and respectful of the golfers. Please wear shirts and shoes when crossing the hill, and do not use your cell phone. It is best to be quiet when golfers are on the 9th green. You may stop and wait, or move quietly by, but try not to distract those focusing on their putts. Top
