The River Starts Here... 

On December 19, 2016, our activity hub, our clubhouse, and our cottage and workshop burned down and were totally destroyed. We have experienced a devastating loss. We have seen the burning of our clubhouse and our auxiliary buildings, but we are not just our structures - - We are the District Yacht Club


For years, we have worked on our structures to make them more appealing for the members, the community, our families and friends. We have had many work parties to improve our surroundings and our yacht club and marine environment. We survived the flooding of hurricane Isabel that rose up into our clubhouse; we mopped up, cleaned up and built up whatever was needed. And we will do it again.


We may have seen our ‘home away from home’ burn down, but our spirit did not suffer the same fate. DYC will be likened to the six million dollar man; we will rebuild. We will be stronger. With more of the hard work of our members and friends, we will make our DYC clubhouse even better than it was. We will celebrate the knowledge that no one and no boats were harmed. We will as a club, be like the mythical bird Phoenix…we will rise up from the ashes. We are the District Yacht Club. We will continue to be a part of the historic boathouse row, a Washington tradition, a good community neighbor and a Boating family. We are still a group of recreational boating enthusiast that enjoys boating, fellowship and family and we will not let a devastating fire change that!


We are the District Yacht Club and we will be better than ever after this.
