Teaching, challenging, empowering and preserving since 1990. As the community outreach arm of CYC, the Chicago Yacht Club Foundation brings awareness and appreciation of the nautical arts and traditions to the Chicagoland community and broadens horizons for our youth and physically disabled through nautical training and boating activities.
The CYC Foundation supports venues that introduce people at many levels to nautical educational and on-the-water activities. Whether these venues are scholarships, access to sailing competitions, restoration projects or any other financial support, the CYC Foundation is dedicated to memorializing the rich history of Lake Michigan and developing maritime traditions. A dedicated Board of Trustees carefully evaluates all options for the Foundation.
