Ocean City Yacht Club has a long history of sailing on the Great Egg Bay and surrounding waters. Sailing programs are offered for Adult and Junior sailors of varying skill levels. Throughout the season we sponsor and attend regattas with neighboring clubs, always with a strong showing of competitive entrants. Under the direction of the Rear Commodore the club has a wide variety of sailing activities to be enjoyed by members and reciprocating guests.
Ocean City Yacht Club is a member of the Mid Atlantic Yacht Racing Association (MAYRA) which coordinates and promotes the sport of sailing throughout South Jersey and its surroundings, through improved communication within the sailing community of the region and providing education to advance the sport of sailing. MAYRA is one of 36 Regional Sailing Associations (RSAs). Similar to many of these RSAs, MAYRA is composed of a cadre of volunteers from its member yacht clubs who join together for the purpose of coordinating and supporting the various sailing activities within a defined geographic area.
We are also a member of US Sailing, and partner with them to provide training, education, race management and speakers to our membership. We encourage members to enroll in the US Sailing MVP program, which provides discounted memberships and program credits to our organization.
