Party with OPCYC
One of the wonderful aspects of OPCYC membership is the active social life. The wide experience level and diversity of our Membership makes for great gatherings. We have at least one club-wide social gathering each month year-round and often more than one. Our central location allows us to take advantage of local restaurants and hold dinner meetings around the Hampton Roads area as well as making use of our Clubhouse. In addition, our location on the Bay gives us a wide range of close boating destinations for weekend club cruises and casual raft-ups in the warmer months. For major races like the Tri-Service Cup, the 'Round the Lights Race and the Dana Dillon New Year's Madness Race and other events like the Blessing of the Fleet, Derby Day, Super Bowl or other excuses for gathering - we host special parties that are popular with our membership. Our annual Commodore's Ball in January is the social event of the year where members turn out in their finest.
"It's party time!" is an often-heard OPCYC cry on the docks, in the clubhouse, and in cockpits all over the lower Bay. When the sun is over the yardarm, you won't find a friendlier crew than you'll meet in the OPCYC. Join up, watch The Helmsman newsletter for upcoming events, and join your friends for a great time on the Chesapeake Bay.
