The June Midweek was a lovely event.  The weather forecast was awful but it turned out to be a beautiful day.  Twenty members had lunch and or dinner on the lawn and just relaxed in the warm sunshine.  As usual Wally and Molly outdid themselves with their hospitality. In the picture to the left Wally is telling the real story behind this special picnic. Please check out the pictures on the Flickr by clicking the link below

"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.
