Welcome to the Capital Yacht Club

Our club is located at the heart of the exciting new Wharf development. Established in 1892 we have a rich tradition of boating on the Washington Channel. Our new 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.
