Charter Boats

McLaughlin offers world-class support and service to sailors, providing race-ready charter boats and working closely with teams and competitors who arrive early for practices.

What’s Included: Dolly, Top Cover and Hull complete with mainsheet, bowline, bailers, paddle and blocks are included.

Charters will be made available on the day before racing begins unless other special arrangements are made, boats on dollies, ready to go. Top cover and dolly will be tagged with skippers’ names. All the requested gear will be under the top cover. Sailors must supply their own Sail, Sail Ties, Protest Flag, Mast Clamp, and Timer. Sailors should bring their own personal safety equipment and gear needed.

Local Conditions

Chester Yacht Club, like other clubs, offers youth ‘learn-to-sail’ programs under the auspices of Sail Canada’s CANSail standards. Additionally, CYC runs youth regattas, typically for Optimist class dinghies. Green fleets in these regattas occur within the safety of Chester Harbour, with opportunity for spectator viewing; championship fleets are typically set either within the southernmost part of the Harbour or just beyond Miesners and/or Quaker Islands.

Sailors at all levels at CYC generally enjoy ‘champagne’ conditions, with steady breeze and sunny skies.
