Chatham Yacht Club
Teaching Love of Sailing on Pleasant Bay Since 1921
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 – a capital campaign designed to address four important areas for investment at CYC:
Environment: CYC’s beachfront will be tested over the next century due to climate change. Rising tides and increased storm severity pose the risk of erosion and potentially damage to the Club. CYC needs to have the resources necessary to act against these threats and provide annual beach nourishment.
Fleet: CYC’s sailboat and powerboat fleet are both in need of ongoing investment. The cost of upgrades to its 420 and Laser fleets has increased beyond original plans. In addition, CYC’s powerboats are aging and need to evolve to meet changing coaching and instruction needs of our competitive sailors.
Infrastructure: While CYC enjoys a relatively new Clubhouse, it is important to stay current with maintenance and planned repairs both now and over the coming decades. Notably, the Club’s pier and dock require multiple repairs, a new floating dock is needed, as is a new waterline.
Future Capital Needs: In addition to an initial donation to the Campaign, we are asking all families to make ongoing donations to CYC starting in 2024 equal to 10%-15% of their initial donation. The Club’s capital requirements can only be met through annual donations as Membership and Sailing School fees just cover annual expenses. This ongoing generosity will ensure the Club’s needs are funded for years to come.No donation amount is insignificant as we are grateful for every level of support.
To donate to more than one fund, please return to this page and process each donation separately, selecting the appropriate fund each time. Thank you! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
