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. Barring any reintroduction of restrictions, the remaining races in the 2020 CYC Winter Series will be conducted.

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 Winter Series Online Entry, 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 the cold weather sailors on the lake. Please carefully consider the cold-water conditions alongside the COVID Safe plan before making your decision to race.

CYC Sailing School

All further scheduled operations of the Sailing School have been cancelled, and refunds for partially completed or future programs will be given. Unfortunately Sailing School boats will not be available for use until further notice. The annual powerboat course usually scheduled for Autumn/Early winter will be postponed, but if you would like to be notified of future dates please contact the office. If you, or a member of your family are currently enrolled in a program and have not heard from the Sailing School staff then please contact us at
