Maryland Yacht Club, founded in 1908, sponsors or hosts a number of regattas throughout the year. Here are some of the Regattas the club participated in during the 2019 boating season. Our 2020 Regatta schedule will be published as soon as it becomes available. Some events are new while some have become a club tradition. We invite all members to participate. Here is a partial list:
JUNE 1, 2019 – LEUKEMIA CUP
Maryland Yacht Club is teaming with the Eastport Yacht Club to promote the annual Leukemia Cup. The Leukemia Cup Regatta is a racing series designed to raise funds for research to cure blood related cancers like leukemia and lymphoma.

Every year Maryland Yacht Club hosts its annual MYC Challenge Regatta in partnership with the Rock Creek Racing Association. The regatta is a pursuit style race and is open to all participants. The regatta is free to join and is a non-CBYRA sanctioned event. The race begins by the White Rocks, and with the pursuit start, the theory is that all boats will finish at the same time. The finish is at R “4” just off of MYC’s beach and Pavilion which is a great place to watch the race and close finish. Awards ceremony and social held immediately after the event in MYC’s dinning room.
