About HdGYC

The Havre de Grace Yacht Club has been racing sailboats since the founding year of 1978, using the excellent sailing area just off the shores of the City of Havre de Grace, Maryland.  Tidewater Marina provides space for the club’s very modest clubhouse, with room for the essentials of our racing flags, scoring computer and a kegerator for the beer.  Racing starts in Spring and runs into Fall, with one design fleets of Stars, Lightnings and J24s, plus boats of various designs that race using a handicap system, PHRF.  Please see the schedule for racing under the Events tab, and stop by Tidewater Marina by the flag pole outside their store to watch the racing and learn more about the club.  Application forms are available on the clubhouse door and on this website under the Membership tab.

Havre de Grace has a long history of yacht racing –
