Charleston Yacht Club Holy City Sunset Cruise – Join ChYC on our inaugural Sunset Cruise on Sunday, September 17th. This event is open to all members and guests (adults only please). Members will be providing their power and sail boats so that everyone will have the opportunity to see our spectacular city at sunset. We are hosting this event in an effort to provide water access for all members, whether you have a boat or not. It will also be a great way to get to know more members in the club. This event is BYOB and afterwards all cruisers can meet in the Club lounge for snacks.

Let the club know if you have a boat that you’d like to cruise with. Registration is required for this event. Please RSVP by Wednesday, September 13th.
