Providing a continuum of care is the foundation of a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) like Baywoods of Annapolis. CCRC means that the community provides services for Independent Living and Assisted Living. Why is this important? Limits your need to travel.

There’s a New Club on the Bay

Early in 2022 the residents of BayWoods of Annapolis, a continuing care retirement community (CCRC), decided we wanted to better utilize our fabulous bay front location on the Back Creek peninsula.  The solution was determined to be forming a Yacht Club and providing a variety of water related activities. The BayWoods Yacht Club (BWYC) came into being in May of last year and became an instant hit with a sold-out CRAB sailing event, a big-boat three-day charter, a radio-controlled demonstration in the inside pool with a social afterwards, and well attended monthly meetings. Our waterfront location and facilities on Bay Front Drive (fronting on Bembe Beach Road) and directly across the street from Port Annapolis Marina make us a community that was just begging for a Yacht Club organization. Our facilities include an inside pool, large hall and outside patio on the Bay front for meetings and socials. A long pier and Bay Front Deck are perfect for socials and water borne activities including radio-controlled sailboat races. The residents chose five areas of activities and elected a Commodore, Fleet Captains for each of the areas, and specialists in Communications and Video/Presentations. They are: 2023 activities are in full swing with
