Use of the Clubhouse

In general, during the Sailing season, the clubhouse is open for the informal use of CBYC members and their guests, including the members of clubs having reciprocal privileges with CBYC. Those using the clubhouse must clean up after the use of the clubhouse including: wiping tables for spills, picking up garbage and returning tables and chairs to their original positions.

Please note the following clubhouse rules:

  • No smoking in the clubhouse
  • No pets in the clubhouse
  • Supervision by an adult is required for children under 16 in the clubhouse and on the upper deck
  • The clubhouse is to be kept locked with all lights and appliances (fans, BBQ, heaters) turned off when it is not occupied
  • The clubhouse combination is to be made available only to members, reciprocal guests, sailing school instructors and the marina

Any member concerned that the clubhouse is being misused should contact the Clubhouse Chair using the form on the Contact page.


Occasionally there are times when formal club events scheduled by the Executive, or meetings of the Executive, or reservations for use of the clubhouse scheduled by members through the Executive (Clubhouse Chair), may require exclusive use of the facility. Below is a list of currently scheduled times when the clubhouse will be in use.
