The Open Seas Yachting Club is Chesapeake Bay's premier gay and lesbian boating experience - a club for those interested in all aspects of on-water fun. Our goal is to provide a fun avenue for the enjoyment of boating and other water activities in the company of gay men and lesbians.
Established in 1989, the Club has been serving boaters throughout Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware for over 25 years. We usually have members from all over and around the Chesapeake Bay. Our members share a love of boating.
Our fleet includes a wide variety of watercraft ranging from ski boats to substantial motor and sailing yachts. We also have members who do not own boats, but share our love of the water. We offer water and land based social events each year on and around the Chesapeake Bay.
In addition to social events, we have an active website and e-mail (forum) list on our members-only website which keep members informed about club business, past and future events, and our members and what they are up to.
OYSC has volunteers including a volunteer Commodore, Treasurer, Secretary, and Webmaster.
If you see us on the water, say hello! We are always happy to meet fellow boaters.
Visitors are always welcome! Check out our other FAQs for information on how to join.
