Septic System - We Need Your Help!

In 2019, after 50+ years of service, the existing cesspool failed and the CYC residence is no longer habitable.

The CYC has provided housing for Instructors since the 1950s. But for 2020, we have a major septic issue on our hands.

And though we have an amazing team lined up to live and work at CYC in 2020, it's pending the installation of a new system (don’t forget, the residence bathroom also serves as a restroom for kids in the program).

Our goal is to raise $30,000 towards the cost of design and installation of a new system prior to June 1, 2020.

Thanks to the generosity of many, we are fortunate to have some funds allocated from our recent capital campaign, but the cost of designing and installing a new septic system is expected to exceed that allocation.

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.


Any amount you can donate will help, but we are asking for all to stretch to help us cover this unexpected expense.

Help us get back to work on doing what we do best: sailing, friendship, and fun!
