West River Sailing Club

Fleet Number: 

Chesapeake Bay, West River


90 years since our founding as Our Own Damn Yacht Club, we remain a community rooted in the love of sailing and an organization designed to nurture this love. Whether you race or cruise, sail dinghies or yachts, are experienced or not, or are looking for a youth camp, we are the community for you.  Through our many unique programs, fleets, facilities, and ethos, West River Sailing Club insures that we serve every sailor — all while remaining among the most affordable sailing clubs on the Chesapeake Bay. Discover what makes us special and how you can find a home within our community. 

So, if you are interested in one-design racing or recreational sailing, come to WRSC and check out Fleet 97's program. For those new to the game, take some lessons in our adult sailing school. You'll have fun and get familiar with the Scot at the same time, and the price is right. If you're already an experienced racer, you'll find plenty of good competition. If you don't own a boat, don't worry and join our Shared Boat Program where you'll have full access to a Flying Scot. If you have any questions, email FlyingScot@westriversc.com.
