Frequently Asked Questions
Can we get a CYC member discount?
Yes! CYC members pay a discounted hourly rate for all rentals. See the rental agreement for rates.
What is beverage service?
Beverage service is an optional charge of $2 per person (our bartender will track the number of people) and it includes:
- CYC’s recyclable plastic drink cups (9 ounces [wine], 12 ounces [cocktails], and 16 ounces [pints - beer])
- Ice from our ice machine
- Drinks from our soda gun (tonic, club soda, Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, and Sierra Mist)
Any other beverage items, and all alcohol, must be provided by the renter. If you do not choose beverage service, you will need to provide your own cups, ice, and mixer.
Do I really need event insurance?
Yes. There are two ways you can get it:
A. If you have homeowner’s insurance, you can call your insurance company and get an event insurance policy that matches our requirements. (Your insurance may vary.)
B. You can buy event insurance here: www.theeventhelper.com. Follow the requirements in CYC’s rental agreement and easily purchase the policy online. We’ve done some simulations based on common CYC rentals and we estimate that insurance will cost roughly $90-150 depending on the number of attendees.
Is your space wheelchair accessible?
Yes. There are wheelchair-accessible marina bathrooms 200 feet from the clubhouse near the V Dock sign, and renters are given a fob that grants access to those bathrooms. The main event space and bar on the upper floor is wheelchair accessible via a ramp from shore.
The clubhouse’s own bathrooms on the lower floor, down a flight of stairs, are not wheelchair accessible. There is a back door on the lower floor, but there are three steps up from the dock to that back door.
How many people can I fit in the space?
Upper room, seated: about 80
Upper room, standing cocktail-style with limited seating: about 150 - at that point it will feel a little crowded but not too much - it will feel like a good party!
