Established in 1937, the Rock Hall Yacht Club has grown and evolved to promote and develop sailing, other boating, and diverse social activities for the enjoyment of members, their families and guests all while continuing to contribute to the larger Chesapeake Bay community. The club’s membership is composed of persons from all walks of life and the main goal of the club is to promote a sense of community and enjoyment in, on, and around the water.
In operation since 2003, the mission of the RHYC Sailing School (RHYCSS) is to instill a lifelong love of sailing and the water in children and adults by teaching sailing skills in a structured, safe and fun environment. Six levels of sailing courses are offered this summer for all ages and all skill levels. Courses are taught by experienced, US Sailing-certified instructors and safety is the foremost priority. The RHYCSS is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and donations to the school are used for sailing school scholarships and equipment.
