PARTIES

Change of Watch

Our Annual Change of Watch takes place in the month of January, and celebrates the induction of new Bridge Officers and Board of Directors. The Ship’s bell sounds the official beginning of the New Watch at a formal Dinner Dance, and Bridge officers receive their official flags.

Cruise Fever Party

Every year the kickoff of the Cruise schedule begins with a theme oriented, nautical evening of food, fun and friends. You can expect anything from a cruise ship, to island hopping, to ship races. It’s always a great time for everyone, and you’re never quite sure what you’ll see when the members come out for fun.

Candlelight Ball

To celebrate the Valentine’s holiday, CHYC hosts the annual Candlelight Ball, an evening of elegance, fine food, wines and entertainment in a black-tie affair. We have even offered members an opportunity to renew their vows with our Fleet Chaplain.

Commodore’s Ball

Our celebration of appreciation for the hard work and time put forth by the Commodore and his/her spouse. The Board members put this elegant affair together to honor and thank them for their year of service.

Trim A Giving Tree Party

Every year, CHYC selects a local charity to sponsor, and the members come out in force to help and support needy children at Christmastime. Toys, gifts and monetary donations are contributed to our friends who need us most at this most giving time of the year. It’s not unusual to see several hundred gifts under the tree.

Commodore’s Holiday Cheer

Every year, our Commodore invites all the members of the Club to a Holiday reception, complete with Eggnog, light snacks and holiday cheer.

New Year’s Eve Gala

Everyone comes out to celebrate the New Year at CHYC. It’s an evening of celebration, incredible culinary talent by the Chef, Kitchen and Dining Room staff, and great entertainment for all at this formal evening affair.
