We are an organization devoted to having fun on the water with friends. We race sailboats, cruise and party. What's not to like? There aren't any stuffed shirts in our club; any of our members will help you out if you need a hand dropping a mast or installing a fitting.

Club Information and Forms

The Old Point Comfort Yacht Club (OPCYC) is a private organization located at Fort Monroe, VA. It is dedicated to promoting safe racing and cruising, maritime training, and social camaraderie for the benefit of its members and guests. As such, the club runs more races, cruises, training programs and parties than any other on the southern Bay. Skill levels in the club run from novice to seasoned Bay, Caribbean, and Atlantic voyagers and racers. Club members have a reputation for down to earth friendliness and can be counted on to help you out on your sail or power vessel whether it is serving as crew, installing a part, or learning a new technique. The club is a vital part of the Hampton Roads maritime community and often donates to various local charities.
