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.
