CYC Spring 2020 Newsletter

Happy almost summer! We know this has been an anxious and difficult spring for many families. We hope we can provide a small dose of light-hearted moments for you this summer -- as safely as possible. This will require everyone’s cooperation with our guidelines. Below are important details about our operating plan for Summer 2020:

Directory and Boutique:

  • We feel like we owe it to the Community to continue to honor some of our annual traditions: the Directory will be printed this year, and the boutique will be open

    • We are sending our Directory to the printer on June 1, so if you haven’t renewed your Membership, this is your last call! We will put your Directories in the mail this year, so please be on the lookout for it in June

    • The Boutique will be open. Jenn Warr is ordering a limited run of 2020 swag, and she will notify everyone of her operating plan via our social media channels later in June

Boat availability and classes:

  • We are able to get boats on the water this summer and provide recreation, with modifications. We ask that everyone works together with us to follow the State of MA and local guidelines, out of respect for each other, our staff and students, and our island community

  • Some important items of note:

    • There will be no communal life jackets this summer. To participate, you must bring your own PFD

    • The number of boats on the water may be limited due to a rotating maintenance schedule (N10s) or the need for creating safe distances for rigging (floats)

    • There will be no walk-up boat borrowing, due to required cleaning protocols

    • When social distancing cannot be maintained, face masks must be worn on CYC property

  • In Phase 1, there will be no traditional A, B, or C group. We will offer structured boat borrowing only. Anyone with an active Membership and signed waiver (online) may participate. 

    • Family members/cohabiting family only, allowed together in boats

    • Staff will accompany the fleet in crash boats to offer support, and maybe some fun structured activities

    • You may sign up to participate via a white board 24 hours in advance

      • Morning Fleet: 9-11am N10s, Zests, Lasers

      • Afternoon Fleet: 1-4pm Lasers, Zests, 420s

        • Typhoons will not be available until end of June/early July

  • In Phase 2, A, B, and C group may resume, with modifications

    • Family members/cohabiting family or consenting “cohorts” only allowed together in boats

    • A, B, and C groupers who cannot sail independently must be accompanied by a capable family member or assigned partner to participate

Thank you everyone for your understanding and flexibility adapting to the circumstances this summer. Let’s make the best of this by each doing our part, and the good times will follow.
