Rappahannock River Yacht Club

For a small club, RRYC has a big foot print on the cruising and racing scene.  RRYC is to home one of the largest Cape Dory Typhoon fleets and since 2011 hosts the biennial Typhoon National Championship Regatta.  In 2013, RRYC became the host club for the Hospice Turkey Shoot Regatta, one of the largest PHRF regattas on the mid-Chesapeake Bay.  Our cruising fleet typically logs over 1,000 nm annually. Although we are primarily a sailing club we welcome all who love boats of any kind and being on the water.
