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!

The Chapoquoit Yacht Club Council







Wishing you the happiest of holidays, and a wonderful new year!

West Falmouth had about three inches of snow a couple of weeks ago - the perfect amount, many of us locals agree. Pretty to look at, not enough to inconvenience.

Well, it's gone now, but throughout the area the Christmas lights are a-twinkle starting at dusk, and that's good enough.

And we're now past the solstice... declination being what it is, days will actually continue to get SHORTER for a few days (this written 12/22) - but soon, days will start getting longer. A bit later, spring will arrive... and not long after that, that first sweet sail of the season. Joy to all.
