West River Sailing Club is located on the banks of the West River in the quiet town of Galesville, Maryland.  Our clubhouse and grounds command a panoramic view of the West River and Chesapeake Bay.  We are away from the frenetic waters of Annapolis yet within easy reach of Washington and Baltimore where many of our members reside.  Our location is ideally located for racing small boats and allows our cruising fleet to reach many of the Chesapeake Bay's best anchorages.
