About AYCF

The Annapolis Yacht Club Foundation (AYCF) was established by the Annapolis Yacht Club to:

  • provide an opportunity for its members to act collectively to foster local excellence in national and international amateur sailing competition,
  • contribute to maritime-related charitable and educational organizations in the Mid-Chesapeake Bay region, and
  • support charitable and educational activities undertaken by the Club.

Awards to support amateur sailing competition are made on the recommendation of a distinguished Advisory Committee, grants to maritime-related charitable and educational organizations provide members an opportunity to support the community in which their Club is located, and scholarships permit underprivileged youths to participate in maritime-related educational activities.
