Founded in 1922, The Charlottetown Yacht Club is located on one of the most scenic points of the Charlottetown waterfront with a panoramic view of the Harbour. The CYC was built to "Promote small boat sailing and motorboating in and about the Charlottetown Harbour, and to provide for anchorage and facilities realitive thereof for all Club boats as well as visiting boats and yachts".
The CYC has become a leader in seamanship education. With a strong junior Sailing Course using Laser, Optimist and a 420 fleet, many young people have enjoyed becoming water wise. Also, the "young at Heart" are learning to sail in our adult sailing courses, which are rapidly gaining popularity. Contact the CYC at (902) 892-9065 for schedules and registration information.
A tradition of education, racing, and generous hospitality:
A tradition of education, racing, and generous hospitality has been upheld for the past 60 years, and in 1993/94 the CYC took a giant step forward and errected a new modern club and marina facility. In 2000 the CYC continued on the road to expansion by installing a new state of the art floating breakwater and 80 new marina slips to furthur service our members and guests. Sailors will find a marina, moorings with tender service, gas dock, launching slips, a 10,000 lb. crane and mast cranes, all serviced by a friendly knowledgeable staff
The marina facility is as fine as any in Eastern Canada. The docks can accommodate boats up to 130 feet LOA and 20 feet draft. The docks were renovated in 2002, increasing the number of slips available to members and transients to over 100. New electrical pedestals with meters, dock lighting, cable television and telephone outlet capability. The club''s convenient ramp allows members to easily launch their trailer boats. And every member and guest enjoys the benefits of fuel services and full-time dockmaster services.
