Sailing Committee
The sailing committee is looking for enthusiastic members who are willing to help with these various events and the committee. Let us know if you would like to help on the committee, as a presenter, or as a volunteer at any of our events. Want to help out with the committee here are some areas that the committee could use help with  

  • Publicity and Sponsorship Promote events in an inventive, exciting, and timely manner. Assist in securing and working with sponsors for events. 
  • Race Management Gather race committee members, make sure equipment is ready for events.   
  • Education and Enrichment Develop new educational series and field trips to help promote sailing at the Charleston Yacht Club. 

Do you know of a business that you think would be a good fit as a sponsor for our events? Let us know! We have sponsorship proposals and packages and would love to talk with potential sponsors to see how we can build a partnership. 

Friends of ChYC Sailing
Each year the members of the Charleston Yacht Club support sailors during the annual ChYC Regatta. These patrons have helped our events with aiding race committee needs and by providing boats for junior sailors. This year we are creating the Friends of ChYC to recognize our benefactors. Keep an eye out for information on how you can join this remarkable group of members.
