We also looked at and like Chesapeake Yacht Club. Great place. Formal dress in the one dining room, pool only open from Fri- Sun influenced our decision. They were also the priciest YC on the Bay. Also proximity to our home was a small but final factor

We sometimes dock there when we go to the West as we have a reciprocal yacht club agreement with them and it costs us $25. The reciprocal agreements re great for us when we chose to get a slip. We have stayed at CYC, Kent Island YC and Baltinore Yacht Club (Sue Creek) for next to nothing. We don't take a slip often, but joing a YC has some advantages.

One of the advantages of it was there was an anchorage area.

A big part of our decision was also to be on a River we could sail on if the eweather was too crazy on the Bay. It pretty much honed us in on Severn, Magothy, and Patapsco. Have you looked on Magothy or Severn?

I have not bothered to look on the Severn thinking its beyond our price range. I did explore some places on the Magothy, most are high priced or cannot take a boat with LOA of 43' A good friend is a member of PSA, great club but I'm not interested in a mooring only at this point, to many on going boat projects North Shore Marina on broad creek doesn't have a online contact but I will try to reach them.

Re: Marinas-West/Rhode/South Rivers?

Hoilday Hill is a bit pricey?? Are you sure you're talking about the same Holiday Hill that I was just at? Calawasse Road?

Dude, I was paying $400/month to liveaboard for a 30 footer!
It's true that the amenities are sparse, but they're still the cheapest place in the area except for Liberty Marina which is just not a nice place.

Free Wi-Fi, water and electricity, a 10 minute motor to the "raise sails" point.

What kind of amenities are you looking for?

bubble, Ralph quoted me prices ranging from 3400 to 5500 a year. it's a great spot well taking care of Marina but price is over 4000 for that marina seen a bit high when compared to some others I've looked at in that area. perhaps I just haven't gathered enough information yet

$4800 a year is not bad for your area. What size slip?

Shawn,

I know you are looking to maybe reloacate to sail another area, and that may be driving your search, but just thought Id throw the MYC prices at you in case you arent finding prices to your liking elseware. Also for others who are looking

Just as a comparable- MYC
40 ft slip X 14 ft + yearly membership= $4100
50 ft slip X 15 ft + yearly membership= $4500
60 ft slip X 16 ft + yearly membership= $4900
Wide safe piers, finger piers are all at least 35 ft alongside your boat
360 Hurricane Hole, Close to stores and West Marine
Quiet tranquil tree lined setting with 120 slips

2 minutes to setting your sails or dropping them
Ability to sail the wide river on extreme windy days on the Bay
4 hours to many of the best anchorages on the Chessie including Rock Hall, Chester River, Annapolis, Magaothy in the Middle Chessie and nettle free swiming at Worton, Still Pond, Middle River and Sassafras in the northern Chessie

Includes Pool, restaurant, 8 acres, Pavillion, BBQ pits, Fuel dock with discount, Portable and regular pump out, playground for kids, paved parking, Reciprocity yacht club rate for transient slips at all Yacht Clubs on the Chessie and even some in New England, Not a working club so hours are not required

Re: Marinas-West/Rhode/South Rivers?

Shawn,

If HHS is the closest place to your house but you are looking for something less flashy and lower priced, you should expand your search area to include HHN (unless you're already ruled it out on price) and Shipwright Harbor. HHN is somewhat less than HHS, the boatyard and West Marine are right there and the pool is arguably nicer than at South.

Shipwright is, shall we say, "rustic" in comparison to either HHN or HHS, but we find we're happier there than while based at HHS. They have small but decent pool that is never crowded (unlike HHS which was ALWAYS crowded) and there is a nice picnic area for cooking or hanging out off the boat. The docks are just OK and finger piers are shorter than I'd like. However, I'll take the easy entrance/exit to my short fingerpiered dock over having to fight my way in/out to my full lenghth finger piered dock at HHS. Also, many slips have easy shoreside access to the bath house and parking so, loading is less hassle as is a call to the head.

You do have to deal with Long Bar to get out to the Bay, but its open enough that you can be sailing shortly after exiting Rockhold Creek, and with your draft, you have the option to cut the bar if heading toward West River, Annapolis or points north, at least on a high tide.

Your T37 would need the same sized slip as my boat so if you pay annually and get the 10% discount you'd be around $3800/yr.

I'm not in the market for a yacht club at this juncture, but just for our edification could you share what percentage of MYC is sail vs. Power?

I know the answer for the other yacht club in this thread and its one reason I ruled out membership.

We have 54 sailboats and 42 powerboats at this time. We have two sailboats less than 30 ft and most are in the 35-45 ft range. over 50 with a 62 ft Sundeer that did the ARC two years ago.

The depth of our slips except for the two closest to the shore is 9-13 ft MLW

Re: Marinas-West/Rhode/South Rivers?

I looked at two slips at West River Yacht Club this weekend - both on the C pier (51 and 57). They were $3,500 and $3,200 respectively. The first might be a tad small for you but the second was a 45 ft slip.

Holiday Hill was pricey at $4,600, I thought. But the owner said he could give me a real good deal - but never said what it was which I found a little annoying. I'm looking for a boat slip, not a used car.

I called about a slip at Liberty Marina. It was $3,272 and Londontowne Marina also has one for $3,700.

Is there a Membership fee in addition to the slips fees at the West River Yacht Club
