Happy Anniversary to Us! We did it. The Back Creek Yacht Club began in 2001 and is now the best “virtual” Yacht Club on the Bay.BCYC welcomes new members who are enthusiastic about enjoying the beauty of the Bay. Join a great mix of sailors and power boaters for festive land and sea events in all seasons. See the About Us tab to learn more or join us at one of our events.
If you are interested in learning more about the Club, the chair or a member of the committee will be happy to speak to you. The Membership Committee Chair is Sherry Render. You can reach Sherry by email or you may simply apply for membership.
We offer memberships to couples and individuals with a passion for boating and:
Who own boats (or have access to one) and who are geographically able to attend events throughout the year
Who are likely to be active, participate in land and sea events, and 'move up' through the ranks
Who are willing to assist with planning and hosting events
Who are part of the Chesapeake Bay boating community
Who will be involved and are fun and bring positive energy
Who fully understand why BCYC is “All About the People”
A BCYC membership is "dual," which means up to two people (for example, you and your spouse or you and your boat partner) are eligible to join under one membership. Members receive a reciprocity card so they may attend and dine at certain other yacht clubs.
First-time membership in BCYC requires an initiation fee of $300 and a yearly membership fee of $200, covering the period from January 1 through December 31. If you sign up after July 1 of any given year, your annual dues are reduced to $100. See the "New Member Application" tab for details.
