2020 - 2021 Summer Racing Dates available
Planning your summer racing? You can download the CYC's Racing Calendar here. Other documents such as the 2020 - 2021 NOR's are now available from the racing information and special regatta pages as they are released.

CYC Operations Situation 

We are excited to confirm that with the relaxation of ACT Sport & Recreation guidelines, we are able to return to racing, all be it under some strict conditions. The exemptions that have been put in place to allow us to proceed are the result of some excellent communication between Australian Sailing and ACT Sport & Recreation. 

The CYC has developed a COVID Safe Return to Sailing Plan, and it is vital that all competitors familiarise themselves with this one-page document. Please go to the CYC Racing Information Page to access the CYC COVID Safe Plan, NOR, Amendments & Sailing Instructions.

We would like to thank all members for their patience during this time of change, and look forward to seeing sailors back on the lake.
