The Annapolis Yacht Club cordially invites ICOYC members for a week-long cruise on our beautiful Chesapeake Bay. Registration and the opening reception will take place at AYC on Friday, October 7, 2022.


From Annapolis, we will sail to a quiet anchorage for the first evening on the water. The next day, we cruise to the quiet town of Oxford for an Oyster Roast and a “Taste of the Chesapeake” dinner. Then, to St. Michaels to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. The first night is a BYOB Happy Hour while Tuesday is a tour of the Museum along with a catered dinner in the historic Small Boat Shed featuring local Chesapeake Bay entertainment. Wednesday, we visit the Chesapeake Yacht Club in Shady Side. On Thursday, cruisers will anchor in various Annapolis locations and attend parties at the homes of AYC members – a repeat from the 2015 cruise which received rave reviews. The closing reception will once again be held at AYC in the Main Clubhouse.


If you are returning to AYC, we will be pleased to show you our Main Clubhouse, newly rebuilt from the fire that occurred two months after the 2015 ICOYC cruise. We also have two new facilities – a state-of-the-art Sailing Center and an Activity Center.


As a special treat, the Annapolis Powerboat and Sailboat Shows are scheduled on the opening and closing weekends so that you may browse to your heart’s content.


Our Cruise Planning Committee has put together a great week of activities. We look forward to hosting ICOYC members at the Annapolis Yacht Club, providing you with a fun-filled week on the Bay.
