Severn River Yacht Club
Located in historic Eastport, Maryland, the Club actively pursues its goals of promoting and encouraging yachting, seamanship, and good fellowship among its members. The Club is an active member of the Chesapeake Bay Yacht Racing Association (CBYRA). The Club conducts sailboat races for its members and sponsors races for fellow yachtsmen who are members of CBYRA.
The Severn River Yacht Club was founded in 1966 by John H. Mears, Jr. and entered that year onto the Lloyd's Register of yacht clubs in Surrey, United Kingdom. In the fall of 1972, John Mears appointed the first Board of Governors and the initial slate of Club Officers. The appointments were made from among Mears Marina yachtsmen for the purpose of organizing the Yacht Club.
