The Chesapeake Yacht Club is one of the oldest clubs on the Bay with a rich history and has operated continuously since it was chartered on January 8, 1947. It is a private, member-owned club led by an elected Board of Governors and a full-time management staff oversees daily operations. As a member-owned club, CYC enjoys a 501 (c) (7) tax status.

If you are looking for marina facilities convenient to Northern Virginia, Washington, DC, Annapolis, and Baltimore, CYC is your best choice. Located at the confluence of the West River and South Creek in Shady Side, Md., CYC is approximately 30 minutes from the Washington Beltway. By boat, we’re just 9NM from Annapolis, 15 NM from Kent Narrows, and 15 NM from Tilghman Island. And you don’t have to wait in traffic to cross the Bay Bridge to get to CYC.

CYC grounds are gated, secure and professionally maintained. There are several nearby shops to keep your pantry and bar well stocked and marine experts to work on your engine, sails, and more.

There are plenty of nearby attractions for days the weather (or your engine) isn’t cooperating.
