Announcement :

It is with great sadness that the Club passes on the following news :

Daphne Bamford passed away last Saturday and today was the funeral for Elizabeth Wearn.  

And some more sad news, Sheila Cutts passed away this week as well and her funeral is on Monday 20th at 1pm at St Annes Church Woolston. 

All three ladies were great supporters of the club and actively involved for many years. 

Our thoughts and sympathy go to all the families 

Sailing from Monck’s Bay since 1891, Christchurch Yacht Club is one of the oldest clubs in the country. 

Members past and present provide a roll-call of world-class yachties including New Zealand’s first sailing Olympic Gold Medallists Peter Mander and Jack Cropp in 1956 and Leslie Egnot.

With its distinctive historic clubhouse past Redcliffs on the road to Sumner, CYC has access to the water at all states of the tide and enjoys sailing areas both on the Estuary and over the bar into Sumner Bay. Low tide sailing by the beach at Shag Rock is particularly popular.

CYC has strong fleets of Zephyrs and Lasers supported by a growing fleet of juniors sailing Optimists, Firebugs, P Class and Starlings – all positively encouraged. 

New members and families are always welcome, with learn-to-sail and junior coaching programmes 
available throughout the season.  

Our active keeler fleet benefits from mooring and slipway facilities adjacent to the club
