CLUB MEMBERSHIPS

Deep Creek Yacht Club, Inc. is a members only sailing & social club. Membership is open to individuals or families who have an interest in sailing. Our members range from experienced to beginner and engage in a wide range of sailing activities including day sailing, sailboat racing and adult/junior sailing school. 

Many of our members started out as beginner sailors and learned over time how to sail by crewing for a more experienced sailor or by taking classes and/or private lessons through Deep Creek Sailing School. We actively support the Deep Creek Sailing School and many of it's instructors are members our club.

All members are welcome to participate in any of the club's formal or informal social events/activities. Most weekends during the summer there is a planned event (see events calendar). All events are casual and family friendly.

The club is owned and operated by its members. All members contribute to the upkeep of the club by participating in annual work days and/or other grounds or dock maintenance activities.

There are so many ways to be involved in our club. Whether you choose to sail, socialize, and/or participate in one of our special events, DCYC is a great place to relax, have fun, and make friends that will last a lifetime.
