Our Clubhouse is a steel barge that needs hauling out periodically. Built in 1969, it was hauled out in 1996 after 27 years. It is now 22 years later and time to haul out within two years. Corinthian Yacht Club will have its 75th Anniversary in 2020 and with your help, we will celebrate in our clubhouse with a refreshed exterior and with other improvements such as double pane windows that can be opened. The Racing program also needs capital for newer Whalers and improvements to race committee vessels YC5 and YC6. These improvements are all designed to better serve our members.
We need your help to pay for these improvements. CYC has modest membership dues to keep sailing affordable for all members. Consequently, when we have a capital project we must raise funds to pay for it.
Our 2019 Funding goal is $250,000 to primarily cover the Clubhouse haulout ($160,000) and concurrent clubhouse improvements. Other goals include Race equipment ($40,000) and Junior program. The Heart of CYC Capital Campaign is to fund these projects plus others. A list of improvements and costs is shown below.
We all love Corinthian Yacht Club and are a giving group. We have a history of successful campaigns. In 1969, we did it when we built the Shilshole clubhouse! We did it in 1986 with the J-24 raffle. We did it in 1990 with volunteer labor and material to fill the ‘hole’ on the upper floor. We did it to raise $38,000 of $75,000 for the haulout of the clubhouse in 1996. We did it with the 2005-2007 Heart of CYC campaign with $330,000 when we moved and remodeled the Clubhouse and added new race equipment.
We have every confidence that CYC will do it again, because our members know that to be successful on the water whether cruising or racing, you need to work together as a team; the same is required for a successful yacht club.
