Welcome to the Capital Yacht Club

The Capital Yacht Club (CYC) is located at the heart of The Wharf. Established in 1892, we have a rich tradition of boating on the Washington Channel. Our clubhouse overlooks the club docks providing monumental views, a relaxed atmosphere, and DC hospitality. Come join us as a member or visiting boater and get to know this unique community on DC’s vibrant Southwest Waterfront.
