The "Vagabond Cruise" to the Southern Chesapeake for 2014 was a great success. Ten boats participated in part or all of the 18 day trip.  If you are interested in details of the trip and how it went please check out the blog and the posted pictures.  The club would also like to thank Tom Bernhart for planning and organizing the cruise and Richard Sanger for his invaluable leadership in keeping the group together and moving safely from one destination to the next.

"Gypsea Joe" and his Legacy

It is with wistful gratitude that the Club announces the generosity of "Gypsea Joe" Hergenrather, who passed into the Eternal Yacht Club in the Sky last year.  Joe demonstrated just how much Back Creek Yacht Club meant to him by bequeathing a gift in the amount of $5,000 to the Club.  The Board of Governors has unanimously voted to use the funds to support our yearly Spirit Award, which will henceforth be called the "Gypsea Joe Spirit Award."  We miss you Joe, and are ever grateful for your generosity and, more importantly, all the good times we shared. You will find more information here Commodore's Blog

        "It's all about the people!"

BCYC is virtually the best group of boaters, both sail and power, on the Chesapeake! Known as Bak-Yakkers to our Members, we enjoy each others company and know how to have fun. We gather throughout the year at a variety of land and sea events, planned and hosted by our members.  No clubhouse to maintain, no high-priced dues, just great people mingling on or near the water. 

If this intrigues you contact our Membership Chair at the link below and consider joining us at a future event shown on the Calendar and Events Page.  Details about membership can be found on the Membership page.
