Welcome to the Chapoquoit Yacht Club! For more than a century, CYC has served sailors and yachtspeople, with a special focus on sailing education for kids.

We're located on West Falmouth Harbor, on the east side of Buzzards Bay in Massachusetts. This gives us access to smooth waters in the harbor and the reliable breezes of the Bay. For sailors, it's quite a playground!

The club’s mission of safe recreational and competitive sailing for the members remains our driving goal.On this site you'll find information about our programs, events and membership. We hope that you will find it both fun and informative. Please note that certain sections of the site are available only to members.


We wish you smooth sailing!

...and Autumn is upon us.

The area made it through the remnants of Hurricanes Jose and Nate comfortably, and the region received needed rain for both. But as we write this, you might think it was still summer - except for the changing leaves and the fact that one can make a left-hand turn on most roadways with a minimal wait.

We're giving some thought to a mid-winter meeting, so we'll keep you posted.

Couple of other updates: the Hog Island Race Series is running each Sunday morning through October. The harbor is now open for clamming, and the public beaches are now open to your canine companion!

We've also just posted Sakonnet race results for the season. Our apologies for not getting them up sooner.
