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!

In Memorium: Lynda Spence

We’ve received the sad news that Lynda Spence crossed the bar on February 26. She was born in Boston in 1939 and treasured her time here in West Falmouth with her husband, Robert Mittelstadt, and her children and grandchildren – including her daughter, Stefanie, and son-in-law, Kevin Egan, and their two children, Owen and Paige, who are all active with the Club. You can read her obituary here – she was an amazing woman! Donations in Lynda's memory may be sent to Nurturing Minds, P.O. Box 600617, Newtonville, MA 02460,

Would you like to help us improve the CYC website?

We have a lot of archival and history information stashed in various places. We'd love some help scanning it so that it can be added to the website. It would be a great winter project for some folks - if you're interested, please click the CONTACT US link at left.
