The Capital Yacht Club is located on the Washington Channel, just 95 miles north on the Potomac River from the Chesapeake Bay, in the Nation’s Capital. The Potomac is one of the most historic and beautiful rivers in the United States.

In May each year, over 2,500 pairs of Great Blue Herons leave their nests at Nanjemoy Creek to fill the skies over the Potomac. There are many good marinas and sheltered anchorages along the way for those who want to spend an extra day or two en route to Washington.
