The Charleston Yacht Club was founded in 1934 to foster interest in water sports. Located in downtown Charleston, the club is centrally located for everyone.
WHAT WE SAIL:
OPTIMIST: Optimists are designed for young kids., 8-15 years of age. The Optimist is not only one of the biggest dinghy classes in the world, it is the fastest growing
Open BIC: The fast, planing hull of the Open Bic gives a dynamic sailing experience of a true dinghy that heels. With its 60-foot Open design, including a totally open self draining stern, even capsizing is fun!
VANGUARD 420: Ideal for crews ranging in size from 220-310 lbs., the 420 is manageable for sailors coming out of the Optimist class and enables young sailors to learn teamwork skills that simply cant be learned in single-handed boats. Charleston Community Sailing Inc. has a fleet of 13 competitive 420s for use in the summer program.
