Happy April from the Cuttyhunk Yacht Club!  With warmer weather arriving I hope you are all thinking about days out on the water in the wind and the waves. 

News and Announcements

Renew membership and register kids for Classes - Please visit the CYC website -www.cuttyhunkyachtclub.org - to login and renew your membership and register kids for the summer sailing classes.  YOU MUST BE RENEWED BY JUNE 1 TO BE INCLUDED IN THE 2016 DIRECTORY.

Work weekend June 11-12 2016!  - Please consider a June trip to the island (even for the day) to help open up the club.  Lunch will be served and it’s a great way to see old friends, meet new ones, and help out the CYC.  Many hands make light work!  Please join the crew on Saturday June 11 if you can!  We need you help!

60th Anniversary Capital Campaign - New dock!

The 60th Anniversary Capital Campaign has been very successful.  We have received pledges for over 80% of our $250,000 goal but we need your help to reach the mark.  Celebrate 60 years of the Cuttyhunk Yacht Club with a contribution!   As part of our planned improvements we replaced four of the lasers last summer and are rebuilding the dock this spring.  Thank you to everybody who has contributed to this effort.  Three cheers!

Instructors  - We have a great team of instructors onboard for the 2016 summer – Maddie Lynch, Hannah Lynch, and Carter Walker will be leading the crew with Ben Frothingham there for part of the summer.  We are still looking for a Third Instructor with experience as a junior to work some of the weeks.  Please contact John Kidder at cyckidder@gmail.com if you are interested.

Messing about in boats… - We are looking to hire a part-time “boatswain” to perform maintenance and repair to the CYC sailboats and support powerboats. This person will be responsible for working with the CYC staff to identify and prioritize needed maintenance and repair of the boats in the N10, Laser, and 420 fleets.  Some experience with boat hardware and marine repair is necessary.  Hourly rate based on experience.

If you are interested in any of these announcements or have any questions please contact John Kidder at cyckidder@gmail.com.
