Join CYC

Chesapeake Yacht Club has competitive rates and offers much more than a marina, with slips that can accommodate both power and sailboats, including catamarans.

We have two membership categories:

  • Boating members berth their boats at CYC and enjoy all amenities and services.
  • Associate members enjoy all the benefits of club membership without paying slip fees. Associate members with boats can, when space is available, reserve a slip at the club in accordance with the policies in effect at the time.  We encourage our associate members to bring their boats to the club.

In addition to the great amenities at our Shady Side home port, CYC members have access to other boating and country clubs in the Chesapeake region and across the country through over 700 reciprocal agreements through the Yachting Club of America. Reciprocity may include access to dining and marina facilities, reduced rates, and more.

We host a number of open houses and visit days throughout the boating season to give prospective members a chance to meet current members and see the facilities. To arrange a visit, contact us at 410-867-1500 or, or fill out the secure form below.
