We appreciate your interest in the Chiemsee Yacht Club and would like to present some information on our club.



The CYC was founded in 1913 and is one of most important sailing clubs in Bavaria. Its wooden docking piers are located on the shore of one of the most beautiful inland sailing waters of Germany, the „Bavarian Sea". Sailing conditions here are varied and challenging. The Chiemsee Lake is 84 square kilometers wide, embedded in the landscape of the Bavarian Alpine foothills of the Chiemgau area.

The club hosts numerous ranking regattas, national and international championships in various boat classes. Core focus of the club and its 850 members is the promotion of sailing sport for everyone, a committed youth program and an active club atmosphere. Sailors and recreation seekers alike will find everything they need to their satisfaction on the 22,000 square meter site, which is owned by the club.

The Chiemsee Yacht Club office is open all-day and the Club's full-time employees will take care for all tasks concerning your boat according to your wishes.

The Club's restaurant with its terrace directly at the lake shore is the social center for numerous events and regattas.

On site you can also find a boat wharf and a large boathouse for winter storage. Members, who like to overhaul their boat themselves, can use a workshop, which is equipped with modern tools.

Members without a boat can borrow the club-owned boats, such as two small keel boats of the class „Kielzugvogel", three Pirate class dinghies and a nice clinker built rowboat.

On the ample plot with its large lawns you will find calm places even in high season, be it under a shadowy tree or on a little pier. Children may splash in the shallow water and ambitious sportspeople can work out on the beach volleyball ground or the soccer field. Of course there are also changing rooms and showers, even on one docking pier.

Youth Programm

Youth promotion is our core issue. Therefore the CYC organizes:

  • weekly sailing trainings
  • various training camps, also in other countries
  • the „Chiemsee Youth Week"
  • regatta coaching
  • the club's fleet of Optimist dinghies

Coaches and parents take children and juveniles to regattas and training camps with the club bus.
