The object of the club shall be to encourage the sport of yachting, to promote the science of seamanship and navigation, to provide a suitable clubhouse, anchorage and piers for the use of its boating members and to provide facilities for the recreation and social activities of all its members, both boaters and non-boaters.
Founded in 1930, the North East River Yacht Club is a private yacht club located at the headwaters of the Chesapeake Bay on the Northeast River in North East, Maryland. The club is a member of US SAILING, the CBYRA (Chesapeake Bay Yacht Racing Association), and the CBYCA (Chesapeake Bay Yacht Clubs Association). Its 500 feet of waterfront property provide a perfect setting to entertain or just relax with family or friends. Dining facilities are superb, from the informality of the outdoor patio to the cordial atmosphere of the large and airy Dining Room with its commanding view of the upper Chesapeake Bay. The Burgee Lounge and bar with it's nautical theme provides a welcoming 'watering hole' after a busy day on the water and a waterfront picnic grove with tables and fireplace for family cookouts. The club has the perfect venue and all the facilities to cater a successful party or that special private function. Both boaters and landlubbers will find the club a congenial place to relax and enjoy themselves. The club has it's own small beach where swimming is allowed and members also enjoy access to a pool at a nearby facility for a small fee.
The club has an established sail race program with competitive handicap racing, and informal Thursday evening racing all directly in front of the club. They also have an expanding junior sail program offering junior racing, travel team activities and a learn to sail program for kids throughout the summer.
Year-round club activities provide members the opportunity to participate
and socialize at events and entertainment such as sail races, cruises,
parties, picnics, BBQs, dances, Balls,
seminars, cardboard boat race, new member/birthday nights
In addition, NERYC membership has the great benefit of reciprocity (visitation rights) with a host of yacht clubs around the world.
The Club is within easy access of the tri-state region making us one of the most conveniently situated yacht clubs on the upper Chesapeake Bay.
Above all, the club prides itself in providing a welcoming family environment where life-long friendships are born and lasting memories are made.
The North East River Yacht Club has a lot to offer at an annual rate much lower than you might expect.
