Septic System - Update
In 2019, after 50+ years of service, the existing cesspool failed and the CYC residence was no longer habitable. The CYC has provided housing for instructors since the 1950s. But suddenly, we faced a major septic issue on our hands. The toilet and shower were out of commission. Don’t forget, the residence bathroom has also served as a restroom for kids in the program.
So we set a goal to raise $30,000 towards the cost of design and installation of a new system. And thanks to the generosity of many, we were fortunate to get donations in that helped us achieve our goal!!!
We used those donations, along with our savings to fund the project. However, we are still accepting donations for this project and for CYC’s ongoing needs. We have kept our membership and class fees low for many years to make an affordable and accessible program. In fact, all the money we make each summer from class registrations, memberships, and boutique sales goes towards running the program.
So any amount you can donate will help so we can focus on what we do best: sailing, friendship, and fun!
