Clubhouse and Facility Use
As a member in good standing, you receive a key to the premises, which leaves you free to enjoy our facilities at your leisure.
Members receive discounts on sailing courses offered at the CYC. For course listings, visit the Sailing Programs page.
As a member you have access to boat rental from The Club - 420's for adults and Optis for juniors. In the spring the boats are available during the week, evenings and weekends. During our teaching season of July and August, boats are available on weekends and on evenings when they are not being used. Boats are available free of charge to juniors enrolled in our Youth Racing Program.
The CYC is a not for profit sailing club run by volunteers. Part of your membership entails a commitment of ten (10) volunteer hours to be spent at The Club over the season. All members must post a $175 work bond in the form of a post dated cheque. If you do not fulfil your volunteer commitment, your bond will be cashed at the end of the sailing season. For further information, please contact the Club Manager.
Club Policy on Motorboats
Due to space limitations, the Club cannot accept summer motorboat/trailer parking on the premises, however, if you own a motorboat you can purchase a full club membership and use the launch facilities. This is a full membership and entitles you to the same benefits and obligations as other CYC members.
Sharing the Facilities
As there are many members sharing the club, we ask that you familiarize yourself with our guidelines.
