Welcome to the Chester Yacht Club

Chester Yacht Club | Chester, NS

Chester Yacht Club (CYC) is a private sailing club situated on beautiful Mahone Bay with excellent access to the best sailing in Canada. CYC is host to Canada’s largest keelboat regatta, Chester Race Week, the much anticipated and highly regarded annual Opti Jam dinghy regatta, and is home to robust and internationally respected IOD and Bluenose fleets. Our objective is to encourage Club members to become more proficient in the personal management, maintenance and handling of their boats; to promote safety, proper navigation and seamanship; to provide social and instructional activities in the interests of all Club members and their guests; and to enhance the sport of sailing within our membership and community.

COVID-19 Update – CYC Cancellations

Good Afternoon CYC Members,

In the ever changing COVID-19 environment in which we are living, the Nova Scotia government announced yesterday, Wednesday Nov 24, new restrictions in Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) and across the province   https://novascotia.ca/coronavirus/

Due to the spike in HRM Covid-19 transmission and the rising health concerns of community spread, Chester Yacht Club will not hold any upcoming events for the next month.  Licensed establishments in HRM will be closed for in-person seating and we will follow this guidance.

CYC cancellation’s will include the Chester Village Christmas craft workshop on Saturday Nov 28 and our December Social evening on Saturday Dec 5.

We will miss our off-season social gatherings and will keep you updated as restrictions change.

Stay Safe and Stay Well everyone!

Sincerely on behalf of the Executive and Management of the Chester Yacht Club,
David Creighton, Commodore
