Maryland Sailing Clubs
The Annapolis Yacht Club Foundation (AYCF) was established by the Annapolis Yacht Club to provide an opportunity for its members to act collectively to foster local excellence in national and international amateur sailing competition, contribute to maritime-related charitable and educational organizations in the Mid-Chesapeake Bay region, and support charitable and educational activities undertaken by the Club. The Cruising Fleet is comprised of AYC members with roughly 1/3 sailing vessels and 2/3 power, all of whom enjoy cruising the Chesapeake and, occasionally, distant waters. Other than membership in AYC, there are no requirements to join the Cruising Fleet.
