We would love to see you at a pennant cutting and gluing, wine and cheese event at the club. It's a great opportunity to meet other new, recent and long standing members. Make new connections, get involved, learn more about the club and enjoy a glass of wine and beautiful scenery! (no experience necessary :)


ADULT SAILING

Thunderstorms kept us inside this week. Natalie Coleman Fuller lead a chalk-talk about racing. She discussed courses, starts, and racing rules. We were fortunate to have Melise O'Sullivan there from the Dock Committee and Sue Maggioni there from the Patrol Committee to add their input as well. Cathy Taylor reports "I was mesmerized, and I think the instructors got as much out of your presentation as did our students!"

VOLUNTEER CORNER

CYC ONLY FUNCTIONS WITH YOUR HELPING HANDS! We need your help.

In order to keep children safe, the costs affordable as well as maintain the community culture of Chatham Yacht Club, CYC relies on ALL members to volunteer in order to get everything done. This a great way to get to know old and new CYC members.

Thank you to those who have volunteered this season already!



Sailing School Families should sign up for at least ONE VOLUNTEER SLOT PER CHILD enrolled in Sailing School and at least ONE REGATTA DONATION PER CHILD in Sailing School. All other members should sign up for at least TWO VOLUNTEER SLOTS and donate at least ONE ITEM for the Regatta (see separate signups below; the more donations the better, thanks!). If you have a motorboat and are willing to serve as Race Patrol, please consider PATROL as your volunteer responsibility. If you have never patrolled before, don’t worry it is easy and there are plenty of folks to help guide you – just ask

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.

CYC Parking

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.

Mid-day

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!
