Centerboard Yacht Club (CYC) is a non-profit organization located in South Portland, Maine, with frontage and mooring field in Portland Harbor. Founded in 1937 as a sailboat racing club, CYC has evolved into an organization that promotes all aspects of yachting, both sail and power. Its facilities are maintained by club members through various 'work parties' held during the boating season. CYC also promotes numerous social events throughout the year, including club cruises, local sailing regattas and weekly sailboat races in Casco Bay.
