CCYC was founded on the assertion that cruising was the ultimate pleasure of yachting and that Christopher Columbus was the ultimate cruiser. His exceptional sailing qualities as an explorer, adventurer and most importantly, navigator, epitomized all those things that every true sailor must be. It is to the memory of the first Admiral of the Ocean Sea that our YC is dedicated.
"Sailing West to find the riches of the East" was one of the guiding forces behind Christopher Columbus. This club, the Christopher Columbus Yacht Club, has its own guiding forces. Like Christopher Columbus, we too are seeking "riches". Our goals and objective include: discovering new cruising grounds, establishing moorings at desired locations, encouraging yachting and social recreation among our members, and ensuring purposeful growth within our membership.
