General Registration

This summer we request that all members planning to race in a given class register their name, boat number (except for Club-owned 420’s and Optimists), and expected crew member(s) before the start of the season through the links below.  This information will provide a useful reference tool for the Dock Committees managing races on any given day.

Upon a given race day, we then ask all participants to sail past the Dock Committee before their class’s first race and verbally register with the Dock Committee.  If for any reason this is not possible, participants can verbally register with a Patrol Boat.  This process will ensure all competitors are properly registered while promoting social distancing that would be difficult with our traditional registration method. 

Registration for the 420 races will take place each week. All competitors will need to register by the night before their assigned race day -- by Monday night for the Tuesday races, and by Tuesday night for the Wednesday races.  In the morning before racing, boats will be randomly assigned to sailors and boat assignments will be emailed to competitors. 

Registration process for Club owned optimists is still in the works. For now, use the links below and register with the sail number "CYC" to indicate that you'll need a CYC boat. As more information becomes available we will update this page and communicate updates to our Opti sailors. 




If you need to make changes to your registration, please email Other than for the 420 races, crew changes do not affect scoring, so no need to worry about those. Honestly, I've included them on the form because we include them on the paper registration.
