Vision for 2025

At CLYC, we value our deep sailing heritage and continually renew and enhance it while offering more social and recreational opportunities, including swimming, dining, boating, and social activities. As a fun food and drink establishment, we assure first-rate service levels, social opportunities, and growing value for money for members and their guests. Our leadership is committed to a strong and stable financial business model to assure club benefits of high value will accrue to generations to come. Our facilities and amenities are of excellent quality and are maintained, in part, through the efforts and energy of our members as volunteers. We treat all members and employees with dignity and respect. In everything we do, we strive to continually improve.
