Escape, Relax, Enjoy!

Escape to the Chesapeake Yacht Club and enjoy the pristine waters and diversity of wildlife on the West River.  We are less than 30 minutes from the Beltway and centrally located on the Bay.

Situated conveniently in Shady Side, Maryland, CYC offers the finest sail and power boating experience. CYC is a gated club with a general manager, chef, professional staff, and dockhands. Our marina facilities can accommodate small run-abouts through 70-foot yachts including catamarans.

Our members enjoy a casual, family and pet-friendly environment featuring social activities, organized cruising, and regattas. For our younger members, CYC has diverse youth programs oriented for all ages. See what our members are saying:

“I should have joined CYC years ago!”

“Finally, there are cruises I can join to explore the Chesapeake.”

“I have made many new friends with similar interests in boating!”

“A safe environment for my children to enjoy.”

“A magical place to get away from it all!”
