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. Please help us reach our fundraising goals for this year! Click the Donate button below.


The Chatham Yacht Club has been dedicated to the promotion of sailboat racing and the development of sailors since 1921. CYC provides sailing instruction to children, adolescents, and adults, and organizes racing experiences in the Pleasant Bay area of Cape Cod, MA. Chatham Yacht Club was founded on three principles that remain central to the Club today: 

  • To promote sailboat racing on Pleasant Bay
  • To teach sailing to young people
  • To encourage active volunteerism in service to the Club
