Membership in the Ocean City Yacht Club


Join the Ocean City Yacht Club to become part of the 121-year history of

maritime tradition, memorable social events, and meaningful support of our community.


Make the Club your bay destination during the summer season.  Whether you stop by to enjoy a drink at sunset, participate in sailing regattas, send the children to beginner sailing programs, or join in the powerboat competitions or fishing tournaments you will find a variety of activities going on at OCYC.  OCYC is a private club whose members enjoy access to the Club House, Commodore's Lounge, Porch Room, docks, boat ramp/crane and boat storage.  Explore the website to see the many programs that members can enjoy.

The Club also has many social events including Friday night bay races & sunset toasts, dining theme nights, weekly bridge competitions, local mainland golf outings during the summer and in Florida during the winter, clay pigeon shooting in our Sailor Shooting Club during the fall and spring as well as social, community & OCYC Foundation events and other activities.  

OCYC members are able to come to dinner when summer crowds make dining out challenging, stop in to meet a friend for lunch by boat, or just come down to enjoy the view of the bay.
