CCYC Members


Dear Member,

Last year we celebrated our 70th anniversary. In 1922 when the club was formed our constitution was set with the following objectives.

  • The encouragement of amateur yacht sailing and racing and the improvement in design of cruising and racing yachts.

  • The encouragement of seamanship and navigation.

  • The holding and arranging of matches, races and regattas.

  • The promotion of social intercourse between members of the club and their friends and the provision of accommodation.

Our world has changed and we are taking this opportunity to ask members for their views as to the direction the club should take to continue to thrive in the decades to come.


The Committee would like all members to contribute through this survey.

Questions cover (1) Your membership, (2) your activities afloat,  (3) your participation in social events, (4) volunteering and (5) the developments you feel are important.
