The COVID Benchmarks in Knox County continue to improve, and the safety, health, and well-being of our club members remain paramount.

In the May 2021 meeting, the CYC board voted to make the following changes:

  • End the requirement to submit a COVID Compliance plan for outdoor activities.
  • End the requirement to submit a COVID Compliance plan for indoor activities.
  • End the requirement for CYC-sponsored activities to wear a mask outdoors.
  • End the requirement to wear a mask inside the Clubhouse for groups of up to 50 people.
  • End the requirement to sign a Waiver of Liability Agreement for activities.
  • Urge the membership to remain Socially Conscious, use personal discretion, and monitor themselves regarding participating in any CYC activity.


  • Sail Camp hosted by Concord Sailing Center (CSC) was involved in the changes above and will implement these changes during Sail Camp this summer.  CSC will continue other COVID mitigation plans such as temperature screenings of everyone each morning of Sail Camp.
  • July 4th party planning is in progress. More details when available.
  • Racing may resume before the summer, possibly with a Memorial Day Regatta as the kickoff. Stay tuned for updates.


  • For 2021, the work hour requirement has been reduced from 15 hours to 12 hours. In the May 2021 meeting, it was confirmed that the work hour requirement remains 12 hours.
  • For 2021, the Board has removed the requirement to work one RC a year and changed it to only an opportunity to earn Work Hour credit under Section F (The Handbook Section K required all Active, Young Active, Senior and Student members to work one RC each year).
  • All members scheduled for Race Committee Duty will receive credit for performing their required RC Duty for all cancelled races. When a race is canceled, no one is charged for unfulfilled RC hours.  This applies to all the canceled races due to COVID-19 in 2021.
